Samara Knight is a recent BA (Hons) Photography graduate of The University for the Creative Arts, Farnham. Her photographic practice originates from a background of fine arts and painting, from which she takes strong influences of materialistic and experimental aspects in her photographic work. Her practice is conceptually driven and influenced by a range of facets, stretching from the natural world, to the nature of photography and personal subject matters. She works predominantly with analogue processes as a reflection of the mythological, theoretical and intimate subjects which she addresses.
