Cultivate: intentionally producing the conditions in which something can flourish

“There are lots of people who take beautiful photographs, but Lancia E. Smith does something more. She has the instincts of a mystic, in touch with the seen and unseen at the very same time, and she has the gift of capturing hidden truth on film. There is something revealing and healing in all her work: as an artist, a speaker, a teacher, a writer. I am an unabashed fan.”

“I’ve worked with Lancia for over five years. She is the best photographer I’ve ever known for capturing not just the outward appearance, but the very the heart – the essence of a person – in her portraits of them. And not just the essence, but the best of that person – their beauty. This is also true of Lancia’s spirit and personality as much as it is of her photographic “eye.” She is able to perceive the qualities of a person that make them better than who they are – their potential, their goodness. For someone writing about goodness, truth, and beauty, I don’t know of a better ability to have. “

“Photography and interviewing are two very different and difficult arts, but remarkably Lancia E. Smith has achieved excellence in both. In both she has an eye for the true, the good and the beautiful. Her photographs consistently bring out the inward and spiritual qualities of her subjects, shining through the outward and visible image. Likewise her interviews have the knack of eliciting from her subjects, unexpected insights and new harmonies of thought. Her well-chosen questions have drawn from me a better and clearer account of my own vision and vocation as a poet than any other interviewer and her photographs have proved, not only a pleasure to the subject, but an inspiration to other artists.”
