Sam Wallis: Questionable Inedible
At Blackpool Social Club we are all about supporting creatives and new graduates in Blackpool: photographers, artists and musicians pushing boundaries and exploring new realms, proving just how cool Blackpool is. Meet photographer Sam Wallis, whose passion for surreal photography and digital manipulation caught our eye.
Sam Wallis: In recent years the scientific community has proven plankton’s ability to digest the smallest of ocean plastics, aka microplastics. With plankton at the bottom of the food chain these findings raise questions over the effect this may be having human health.
By creating a visual link between mass produced, polymer-based items and the food that we farm and consume, I am asking the viewer to question the role in which society plays in the health of future generations.
Utilising Photoshop to combine my own images with those sourced online sits the project firmly in the post photographic whilst paying homage to earlier artistic styles such as collage and appropriation.
He is currently continuing his studies via Karl Taylor Education and the Open University whilst looking forward to starting his Masters in September 2020.
