Sam Taylor-Wood is an English filmmaker, photographer and visual artist. She began exhibiting fine art photography in the early 1990s.
Her Suspended series is a series of self portraits that explore notions of weight and gravity through levitation photography. Her Bram Stoke’s Chair series also involves levitation. For both these series, Taylor-Wood has been harnessed and suspended from wires. The images were then heavily manipulated in postproduction to erase the wires and make it appear that she is levitating in mid air.
Other photography from Sam Taylor-Wood includes her Men Crying series in which she captures famous actors like Daniel Craig and Robin Williams in intimate and fragile portraits.
