|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.
