Sam comments on his work: “I guess if someone asked me how I’d like my work described I’d be happy with cinematic or filmic. The main thing I strive for from people looking at my work is that they draw their own narrative from it; that for a short time, they lose themselves in their imagination and develop their own story within the image. In my late teens, my girlfriend suggested I read Sexus, Plexus & Nexus by Henry Miller. Looking back, it was these books that introduced me to the Beat Generation, which in turn drew me to photographers of that era – and essentially inspired me to go on road trips.
I’m instinctively drawn to shooting at dusk, or using the sun’s flare to put its own on the image. I’m always hoping that in the next town I’ll create the best photo that I can ever make. These images were all shot on road trips around the mid and West of America apart from the Volvo car, which was from a trip around Sweden – my first road trip. “
