After more than 10 years living life as a reformed smoker in a society that promotes non-smoking, our own Jeff Gatesman explores what it is like to be a smoker in a world where being so takes a true commitment. Smoke Free is a double entendre: you can smoke freely in places that allow it, or you can be smoke free. This project is an exploration into the lives of people who smoke because they want to, people who don’t smoke but like it, and those who wish they didn’t smoke. It’s yet another in our series of mini documentaries.
A series of portraits were also made of the people who took part in Smoke Free. You can click on the images to see a larger version.
