Known for his stylish, whimsical, and surreal images, Rodney Smith (1947–2016) started out as a photo-essayist, turned to portrait photography, and found his greatest success in fashion photography. Paul Martineau, curator of photographs at the J. Paul Getty Museum and author of the new book Rodney Smith: A Leap of Faith, joins curator David Campany in conversation to discuss what makes fashion photography art. A book signing follows the event.
