Sam Forsyth-Gray is a Melbourne based photographer, who has recently completed a Bachelor of Photography at Photography Studies College. His work is concerned with ideas of family, memory, and the human condition. Interested in the merging of fine art and documentary visual languages – often using archival images alongside his own images – the process is fluid and experimental. With a special interest in the application of found images within contemporary art practice, his work seeks to create new ways of both seeing and understanding these objects by dissecting and intersecting photographic surfaces, through collage and juxtaposition, and through his own photographic responses.
