Sam's photography essentially endeavors to convey the "Spirit of Place". His photography shares with the viewer each place's essential emotional qualities and spiritual energy. He states "I see the world's vibrancy with a camera, attempting to capture the fleeting moments of sunset, storms, furtive glances, poses, the natural world, the spirit of the land, and the character of a people." Each work of art explores human culture and attempts to place into a single frame of visual media an ineffable aspect of the human experience and the lived environment.|
His images cross the genres of both documentary and fine art, and would be equally comfortable both in the pages of National Geographic and in an art gallery. They are informed by and record his travels. <! -- His favorite memories from India, for example, are from meditating at over 4,000 meters (12,000 feet) in the Himalayas near the source of the Ganges River. This cultural experience is highly idealized in the modern mind, where meditation is a catchphrase. However, for Sam that experience was a vivid, lived moment, and made a deep impression. This ineffable experience is recorded in the frame: "Gandharva Tal and Mt. Shivaling". --> Every place makes a deep impression; Every photograph tells a story. These impressions are shared in the following images. - for more information don't hesitate to contact Sam at firstname.lastname@example.org.
