Sam Samore

Go to list
Sam Samore is most famous for his exhibit "The Suicidist". We have pieces from his later work  -  “The Allegories of Beauty” - an exhibit about art and perfectionism in the 90's.
"I would describe my work as related to fairy tales"

 

 

Artist, storyteller and poet. Sam Samore was born in New York where he still lives. His signature style with over dimensioned photographs of close ups of faces in black and white always has an aura of mysticism around them. His photos are often grainy to create an abstract feeling.He has a weakness for fairytales, history and myths and he uses narrative both in his writing and hin his photographs. His work is often left a little uncomplete to give the spectator room for personal reflections.
