The teenage athletes in “Gymnasium” seem inhabitants of some time or place other than the northwestern Pennsylvania towns where the artist found and photographed them. The sensuality of these young men seems familiar; their gaze immediate and direct; yet their otherworldly quality remains a product of Smalley’s unique vision. No telephone or television seems possible in this particular landscape.

“Gymnasium” is the product of ten years worth of work.

“Gymnasium” also exists as a monograph from Twin Palms Publishers.
