Sam Wright : Biography

Drawing inspiration from some of the American mid-twentieth century colour photographers like William Eggleston, Joel Sternfeld and Stephen Shore; Sam’s approach to photography is about exploring, getting to know a place and creating connections with the people he encounters. Taking these experiences he documents them in a considered, stylised and tangible series of images.

Following art college, he assisted both fine art and advertising photographers which along with his preference to shoot on film, has influenced his work further. Whether shooting portraits or landscapes his work embodies immaculate composure, and honest observation throughout.
 
As an emerging photographer, Sam’s enthusiasm to create new, exciting, and vibrant work has lead him to being exhibited both in the UK and Australia along with features in collaborative art publications. 
 
Recently Double Jab Boxing Show, Millwall has been selected for the 2018 Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize exhibition at The National Portrait Gallery.
