Sam Bassett focuses on conceptualization, looking far beyond the ordinary interpretations
and routine conclusions. Directing his energy to character rather than story, he magnifies his
subjects and reduces them simultaneously, making them immortal as a part of history. His
achievement is not about illusion, but a new form of reality, a form that champions the human

Bassett has captured celebrities such as Willie Nelson, Dominick Dunne, Kirsten Dunst and
Grace Jones, Gwyneth Paltrow, David Lynch and Olympic skier Bode Miller. His work is regularly
featured in magazines such as Flaunt, Jalouse, GQ, and Juxtapoz.
