Sam I Am Management represents a collection of passionate and talented photographers, most often represented in commercial work; the upcoming exhibition at the Melbourne art gallery focuses instead on their rich portfolios of personal work.

The commercial world is a place we inhabit, but the personal realm is where we draw breath.

– Samantha Simpson, Managing Director, Sam I Am Management


The world of photography is ever changing. We are becoming more image literate, and we love it. Smart phones and Instagram have created an avenue to share images for image sake. As a community we are becoming more finely attuned to what is ‘good’ and what is ‘bad’. Photography, more than ever, is a conversation point; it’s all about sharing and expressing the personal.

At Sam I Am our artists are selected as much for the passion they have for their personal work as for their commercial expertise. Great artists share and ideas grow through community. Coming to have a show in Melbourne is our way of sharing in this creative conversation—sharing our work, ideology and passion for photography with Melbourne creatives and friends. This is why we think these artists are incredible.

– Sam I Am Management.


Artists exhibiting will be Paul Barbera, Michael Corridore, Ellen Dahl, Tim Georgeson, John Laurie, Vanessa Levis, Billy Plummer, Tobias Rowles and Cory White.

Exhibition runs Tuesday 11 – Saturday 17 August 2013 at fortyfivedownstairs
