Overview

Since moving to New York City in 2012, Belfast-born visual artist Jonathan David Smyth has been photographing reflections of himself. Shot completely with his camera phone, this ongoing series of self-portraits combines issues of identity, displacement, belonging, and impermanence. As Smyth says, "I make photographs to prove I am here. My work is cathartic, but I want other people to relate to what I am presenting. Just One More is a work of moments; it is a visual diary of my life in New York City, and these photographs are the mappings of where I have been. The pictures already exist; I am just stepping into them." Featuring fifty plates accompanied with handwritten captions, this monograph also includes a critical essay by the executive director of Photographic Center Northwest, Michelle Dunn Marsh, and a conversation between Jonathan David Smyth and photographer Dana Stirling.
