Rfotofolio has this beautiful book. It is the perfect book for escape, for teaching what a portrait can do, for daydreams. Aline takes us on her journey as a photographer.

” Though the photograph took only seconds to capture,I spend hours, days and even years feeling connected to the person on the other side of the lens. And most of the time, my subject has no idea that I have imprinted their soul on my psyche.” Aline Smithson

From Aline Smithson
“After a successful Kickstarter Campaign, my retrospective monograph, Self & Others: Portrait as Autobiography, published by the Magenta Foundation will be released October 1st. For those who purchased a book through the campaign (thank you!), the mailing has already begun and you should be getting your books in the next few weeks.

To launch the book, I will be having a Los Angeles book signing at the amazing bookstore, ARCANA: Books on the Arts, this Saturday, October 3rd from 4 – 6pm. Join me at 8675 Washington Boulevard, Culver City, California 90232, 310-458-1499 Hope to see you there!

If you are planning to attend, park on Helms and Venice Blvd in the two free parking lots on the north side of Venice. We will only be selling the trade edition–if you are interested in the Special Edition, it can be ordered from my website or Magenta’s website.
