Bio

Profile photos samisneider

As a documentary photographer and multimedia artist, I strive to respect each medium I use as a language of its own. Through my own combination of visual and spoken languages, I work to widen and complicate conventions.

I seek soulful expression of our energetic capacity through my photographs.

I am fueled by the chance to make portraits. I work from a curious and intuitive place, relentlessly pursuing my passions. I am interested in oceanic conservation, music, human rights, and extreme sports in nature where communities push limits and protect environments.

I am Latina from Los Angeles, currently in my final year at New York University, working on theses for my degrees in photography and journalism.
