Collaboration has always been an important part of my work. In recent years with my family work and just as much so back in London shooting editorial portraits and record covers. Communication and a good rapport are essential. So now Yali is putting my old GF1 to good use and reminding me that two can play at this game. And so the collaboration evolves... .
Meanwhile I'm immersing myself in shooting for my next book, friends and community (working title 'Neighbours'). It's only when I start to review and select (edit) that these ideas will take shape. For me it's a slow process. I rarely like to review my work more than a few times a year, preferring to accumulate and distance myself from the emotional and psychological connections made during shooting.
.
These past few months have been about getting back to basics; serious shooting, tending my vegetable garden and most importantly, spending quality time with my family (been a little neglected in the past two years due to book making, exhibitions and workshops). I felt the need to take a step back from the super fast social media world. Slowing down, reflecting, rejuvenation, are all part of my process.

  • carlopirrongelligood to see you back Sam
  • davidfranklinbowenBeen a while sam - October? Good to see you :)
  • davidfranklinbowen@hattestein meet Sam, who created 'The Middle of Somewhere' book
  • hattesteinThanks @davidfranklinbowen , a wonderful book.
  • akakyakakyevichOf course, what you two are doing is photographing each other's reflections, thereby adding an unnecessary level of complication to an already complicated photograph, and if there is anything I am about, it is pointing out the unnecessary complication. Failing that, I will create the unnecessary complication. It is the civil servant in me, I think.
