Sam Forsyth-Gray is a Melbourne based artist whose work explores ideas of nostalgia, memory, and the tangibility of the photographic medium. 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 through his own photographic responses.
