Aline Smithson grew up in the shadows of Hollywood, which gave her an early glimpse at artistic expression and the idea of the unreal. Naturally, she took the path into fine art photography. Aline has produced countless series, in both portraiture and fine art photography. Through her work, she hopes to evoke a sense of beauty, pathos, and joy, and with some projects, laughter.

Aline always works alone, without stylists or makeup artists, which gives her a unique outlook on the industry. She discusses this further in her interview with Hasselblad and with her role as a Hasselblad Heroine, Aline examines how she sees women getting more of the spotlight than ever before!
