UPA Visiting Artist

Samantha Jane

Should one follow Susan Sontag’s premise that “The painter constructs, the photographer discloses”, Samantha appears to do both in her images that are both mysterious and accusing perhaps. As she poses in her familiar and iconic environments, empty of humans as a temporal questioning, Samantha questions a sense of place and belonging, posing the question of who we are and how we relate to others and places.
