Meet the Artist: Enrique Samson

  • Atlanta Photography Group 75 Bennett Street NW, B1 Atlanta United States (map)

Join Atlanta Photography Group (APG) to meet photographic artist, Enrique Samson, and learn about his project, The Navel of the Moon, an ongoing exploration of the cultural complexity of Mexico.

Enrique Samson (b.1973, Mexico City) received his Master of Fine Art degree in photography from the Savannah College of Art and Design. He also recently completed a Certificate in Architectural Imagination at the Harvard Graduate School of Design. He has a business degree by the Monterrey Institute of Technology in Mexico and is a former Fortune-500 marketing executive.

Raised in a family of architects, he runs his architecture and interiors photography practice based in Atlanta, GA where he resides with his wife and children. When time allows, he enjoys designing and teaching photography courses at the college level. In his words: “A good literacy in architecture and design are for me more than a personal interest but my family's heritage and the natural way in which I directly relate to my clients' needs.”

His series The Navel of the Moon is an ongoing project inspired by his combined love for his country, the modernist aesthetics of the 20th Century, and “the inherently satisfying physical interaction with analog technology” (which includes film photography that he mixes with digital post-processing). This body of work has received multiple awards and has been published, exhibited, and purchased in Asia, Europe, North and South America.
