Summary In this illustrated biography, Maddow (prize-winning poet, short-story writer, essayist, and critic of photography) presents Smith's major photo-essays and portrait work that span his brilliant career from his days aboard an aircraft carrier, through the breadth of Pittsburgh, to the human suffering explicit in his last great essay made in Minamata. He takes an unflinching look at the man whose achievements were realized at no small cost to himself and those around him, and looks at the muses and demons that drove Smith to the fulfillment of his dream of greatness.
