ABOUT

Sam Warnaar (2000) is an autonomous Dutch photographer who captures her fascination for the naked body, combined with empty spaces, in (self)portraits. 

 

‘’I started photographing with the idea that I wanted to become a portrait or fashion photographer. Photographing in the studio with a model led to in my first experience with nude photography. I loved seeing the skin on my camera and the way the body from the model started to tell a story. Clothing no longer mattered. From that moment, I only wanted to capture the body, preferably in an empty space. The emotion from these surroundings and her body spoke for me. More than clothing or a facial expression could do. Only the body remains when identity and status disappear.

 

After a few years of intuitive photography, I realized, that my photos symbolize the emotions that I not only feel, but also want to capture. It symbolizes my search to being able to be alone and independent. That is why my photography is the way to give attention to that part of me, which leads to finding my identity in my work. For me every photo is a self-portrait. ‘’
