Janet Smith is a photographer based in Arlington MA who enjoys photographing things that do not run away and occasionally things that do.
In her early photographic career, she learned techniques in landscape and nature photography in field workshops with Art Wolfe and David Middleton. She also studied black and white photography for a year at Harvard University with Christopher James. Her participation in master classes at the Maine Media Workshops with Lilo Raymond, Olivia Parker, and Sam Abell helped her develop a personal style with still life photography.
She has had one-person shows at the Newton Free Library, the Cary Memorial Library in Lexington, MA and the Gutman Library at Harvard University. Her photographs have won awards in national shows at the Griffin Museum of Photography and have been accepted in juried shows at the Cambridge Art Association, the Concord Art Association, and the Rocky Neck Art Colony in Gloucester, MA.
Her photographs are included in the permanent collection at Children’s Hospital in Boston, MA and in private collections in the United States and abroad.
