Aline Smithson’s series, Arrangement in Gray and Black: Portrait of the Photographer's Mother, opens today at the Davis Orton Gallery In Hudson, New York. Taken with a Hasselblad, the photographs incorporate traditional photography techniques on hand painted silver gelatin prints. "My patient 85 year-old mother posed in over 20 ensembles, but unfortunately passed away before seeing the finished series. I am grateful for her sense of humor and the time this series allowed us to be together."
