In our recent summer issue, we included a profile of up-and-coming local photographer Anthony Smith.

In that article we highlighted Smith’s first gallery exhibit, Freedom Images.

Now, Smith has followed up that exhibit with his newest photoshoot, a set titled Beautiful Basilisk.

The title is a nod to the omnipresence of snakes in the shoot, with the basilisk being the mythological king of serpents. The shoot features a series of models posing with snakes and adorned in gold.

We’ve compiled just a small sampling of Smith’s photoshoot. Check out the pictures below, and be sure to follow Unspoken Memories Photography on Facebook to keep up with his latest work.
