Jesse Smith has carved a successful career in high-end commercial photography, while boasting a slick and dynamic creative practice that explores an unusual world of dark cinematica and hip, sinister moods. Using muted colours and dark, deep tones, Smith's imagery is rendered with un unashamedly high-tech sensibility. Superhuman bodies, freeze-framed mid-flight with earth-shattering clarity, produce hyper-kinetic still life studies from split-second motion capture. Smith also brings this filmic narrative aesthetic to his commercial work, injecting it with a unique attitude that vivifies and contemporises even the most pedestrian of advertising content.
