Sam Smith in Concert – Christine Allan
Archival Digital Print
Chris Allan is a Sierra Foothills-based photographer who seeks to create art that touches
people in any kind of emotional, intellectual, spiritual way. As a queer artist, I particularly
recognize and appreciate the dark aspects of our lives and culture, as we deal with its mysteries
and challenges. At other times, I seek the balance of using my aesthetic compass to find and
depict the beautiful, inspiring and celebratory parts of life.
My image of openly-gay British pop star Sam Smith is an example of blending Smith’s strength,
humor and beauty within a highly contrasted scene that emphasizes the darkness and the light.
The shot was taken from his opening song when he was in Sacramento at the Golden 1 Arena
on his concert tour. I have printed it on archival Moab metallic art paper.
