Stunning Reflective Landscapes by Cody Smith
Cody William Smith is a professional Photographer and Director of Photography. Originally from Reno Nevada, he moved to Los Angeles in 2011 and earned his BFA in Cinema from Columbia College in 2012. As a photographer he specializes in landscape, fine art, and environmental portraiture.
One of the last Cody’s works is a series of landscape photographs where he masterly merge multiple perspectives into one intriguing photograph using circular mirrors. As artist explains, “This project with reflections is an ongoing one, and as such, I feel as though what I am trying to capture in the mirror varies with every angle, every location, and every photograph. Sometimes I feel as though the reflections are revealing the hidden symmetry in complex landscapes, and at other times there are connections being drawn between opposites. In every instance, however, I am managing to shoot in two directions at once. Always, to look (or photograph) in one direction, is to ignore another. With these specular reflections I am able to merge two separate perspectives, and so the resulting images are subject to endless variation.”
From land to sea, Smith presents the world with a wonderfully elegant approach.
