IAMSAM aka Sam Wallis
Currently Studying for an MA in Photography at Preston UCLAN, UK. My latest project 'Terrarum Exiguum' utilises macro photography to visualise the constant struggle between man and nature.
My first major project ‘Questionable Inedible’ recently exhibited at the Open Eye Gallery, Liverpool as part of the LOOK: Climate Lab 2022 and prior to that, at the First Light Northern Graduate Showcase in association with the Waterside Arts Gallery.
In 2020 I graduated from the Blackpool School of Arts where I gained 1st class honours in BA Photography. In my time there I assisted in revalidating the HE Photography course and also assisted in the curating of our exhibition 'Interim' as well as produce our end of year photo book 'Photowave 2020'.
