Sam Haskins is a photographer whose work has graced the pages of many fashion magazines and advertising campaigns. A prize winning photographer and early imageer whose work features the human form, still lifes, travelogues, surrealist influences and graphically powerful compositions.
He was one of the first photographers to pioneer the production and publishing of photographic essays. His first book Five Girls – 1962, created quite a stir when it was published in the early 60’s. His second book Cowboy Kate and Other Stories – 1964, was so well received it was awarded the Prix Nadar.
Sam has been at the forefront of the creative manipulation of photography and has been especially innovative in his use of non digital techniques. Sam is also a convert to digital and spends many hours working with Photoshop. I’ve been told he continues to shoot with his much loved Pentax 6×7 and scanning his negatives and transparencies with an Imacon and printing on an Epson 7800.
