Kyushu is the third largest, and most southwesterly, of the four prominent Japanese islands. With a population of over thirteen-million, Kyushu is known for its contrasts between the rural and urban landscape, which the active volcano of Mount Aso and the city of Kumamoto are apart. Within Northern Kyushu is the region, Kumamoto Prefecture, and the setting for Smith’s photographic series. The focus of the project Kumamoto Prefecture is in its ability to review the order within disorder seen within an ad hoc trip across the region. Focusing on the found object, alternative landscape and deadpan portraits, the work questions the subtly of order within the modern Japanese rural landscape.
