Photo Club: Sam Abell

Whether you realize it or not, you have seen his photographs: Sam Abell is one of the preeminent photographers of the last half-century and—lucky us!—one of our humble neighbors. Through his work with National Geographic, Sam defined the culture of quiet but expressive communities that have since become iconic moments, all thanks to his images. Practicing studied compositions, extreme patience, and a knack for being in the right place at the right time, he is the manifestation of the artist journalist; telling stories and crafting beauty at the same time. And in an expansive career that keeps marching on—check his recent advertising work (vogue.com/article/acne-studios-cindy-crawford-sam-abell)—he has captured some of the most beautiful moments of light that pulls at every photographer’s heart strings.
Come hear Sam’s personal stories, discover the process of his craft, and see the images that helped to define one of the greatest magazines of all time, in an intimate presentation and social gathering. Q&A to follow.
