CV



Manitoba based photographer Tim Smith has spent twelve years documenting life on the prairies including ten years photographing the Hutterites; insular Anabaptists that live communally on colonies in Canada and the United States. His work is among the broadest and most extensive visual documentations of their culture ever produced. In addition to long-term documentary work he covers assignments for a variety of editorial and commercial clients in the prairies and occasionally further on. His work has been published in newspapers and magazines worldwide. Some of his work from the prairies and the Hutterites is part of the Province of Manitoba's art collection. Smith has begun exhibiting his work in galleries throughout Canada.
