Sam Haskins is a Designer / Photographer. He lived his youth on the African veldt, far removed from all the cultural traditions of Europe that would eventually have such a profound influence on his life. Art courses at school and colleges culminated in a three year sojourn in bomb scarred, postwar London. Here he very soon immersed himself in the study and appreciation of the available aesthetic wealth. As an escape from the strictures of a career in advertising and editorial illustration he later embarked on a range of personal projects – an extension of his inveterate passions. As a dedicated bibliophile, his new activities then naturally gravitated towards creating books. Books of images. Some told a story, others documented people and places. They all strove to share Sam’s visual thoughts. (Taken from Sam Haskins on the web)
