The First Years by Josh Smith


 Dark Spring Press proudly announces the publication of The First Years by Josh Smith, which is currently in the final design stages and will be going to print soon!  Josh Smith explores the life of family through his camera’s eye, revealing the strange and beautiful world inhabited by new parents from a unique and personal perspective. His images are not mere family portraits or snapshots; they pulse with joy and struggle, light and life. 

Under the guise of family historian, I continue to examine and better understand this new way of being. Through this process, I explore all the nuanced contradictions that exist within the complex and universal realm of family.  – Josh Smith
