Raised on Manhattan's Upper East Side, Smith's work critically examines the world of privilege and wealth she experienced at a young age. Photographing childhood friends in their lush homes and drag queens posing as suburban housewives, Smith makes pictures that look like subversive editorial spreads for Town and Country.

The recipient of numerous awards, including the Marie Walsh Sharpe Studio Residency, Smith was recently chosen by Saatchi Online to show at the New York PULSE Contemporary Art Fair. Recently named one of the best new artists working today by ArtReview, Smith is an underrated gem on the art market—just ask Elton John, he's an early collector of her work.Read Less
