Sam Falls's interest in photography began during his teenage years stemming from his interest in theoretical physics. His work draws parallels between the two disciplines through their focus on color and light. As an artist Falls moves between varied themes and subject matter in his work, and he also experiments with different styles and mediums. Falls often uses personal fixtures in his life as the subject of his work, from his mother to his horse.
Falls is not only a photographer but also a writer, painter, videographer, and a curator. His works are full of vibrant color and emotion and hint at larger questions concerning photography and conceptual art. Working in Brooklyn, New York, Falls continues to experiment with his process, creating art that is personable and beautiful.
