Smad de Coti

French self-taught photographer Smad de Coti lives and works in Miami FL.

Miami, city of light, is of great inspiration to this visionary artist who creates futuristic and phantasmagorical scenes, produces an abstract calligraphy, plays with aquatic surfaces reflecting the moon, Bengali fireworks and more.

Without any help form a computer, just using his camera, moving or balancing it in choreographed gestures, zooming the objective lens, playing with focus, Smad brings to us highly uniquely-approached urban scapes.

His unique use of the digital camera creates lighting effects that provide a great sense of movement, depth and energy which no computer manipulation can reproduce.

His dancing photographs capture the essence of the night light, whose paths create vibrant, enigmatic, abstract and surreal scenes.
