Sam Samore is known not only for his photographs but also for his radical retelling of traditional stories, fairy tales, and great works of literature. As a storyteller, Samore changes characters’ sexual identities, redirects their desire, and weaves wild incidents into the narrative — disrupting the moral fixity of historical forms. As the author himself states, he “can take the stories and rewrite them over and over, using a multitude of possibilities”.
Publisher: Lettre volée and Galerie Rodolphe Janssen. 1997.
Photographer, Sam Samore has long challenged the medium. His work deconstructs codes of cinema, plays with narrative, and insinuates subtle allegories of beauty and atmospheric plots without resorting to the continuity of a storyboard.
