Kaitlyn Jo Smith is an artist, adventurer and content creator who is currently living and working in Tucson, Arizona, where she is pursuing her MFA in photography at the University of Arizona. Smith received her BFA at the Columbus College of Art and Design in Ohio. Her art often includes found imagery and objects containing themes of nostalgia and a strong longing for home.

Made with the physical earth, each mud print calls into question the meaning of home. Kaitlyn creates a sense of uncommon sentimentality through simultaneously preserving and erasing histories. The photograph allows the viewer to enter the property but never the home.

Showing at FIFTY24SF Gallery this Saturday, June 11 with a solo show called “In My Room,” we look at the photography of Swampy. We think these are what initial drew us to Swampy, and even though we know that the icon has a mystique and a powerful feeling to it, it is the photography that seems to carry the most weight, an authentic, organic essence of open freedom and exploration in an era where we mostly just find ourselves consumed in digital. These are storytellers in the original sense. —Raymond Brown / The Citrus Report staff
