Mickey Smith does what artists do. She finds beauty where no one has perceived it before.
Hundreds of librarians, historians, scholars and pages have trolled the book stacks of the Minnesota Historical Society over the last century and a half. Where they saw utilitarian texts, Mickey's lens finds the unusual juxtaposition, word play, interesting placement, and the occasional attractive binding. Especially interesting to her eye is the repetitive nature of periodicals with the often opaque and vague suggestion of the significant content they may hold.
Her photography gives us an entirely new way to look at our familiar world.
