 Sam Taylor-Wood

*1967 in London (GB); 1990 graduated Goldsmith's College, London; lives and works in London. Sam Taylor-Wood has worked in video and film as well as photography. In the early 1990s she shot still photos, with herself as the model. She then shifted to large format of film and video projection as her preferred medium. The documentary aspect of her work aligns her with British Kitchen-Sink realism, but the classical references and posh settings redefine the genre as something more like cocktail-party realism. Within this context, Taylor-Wood continues to pose provocative questions about identity in modern society.
