From his "Pittsburgh Series." On a large mount with Estate stamp on verso, and various printed and written information. This is an Exhibition print. Although this was a subject found on a Pittsburgh pavement, those expecting more conventionally documentary subject matter from Smith will be surprised, but this has, to me, an interesting character that prefigures some much later photography. It's a portrait. Was Smith a master of blacks, or what?
