Sam Irons was born in London, UK in 1978. He received a BA (Hons) in English Literature at Trinity College before going on to Brighton University where he gained a BA (Hons) in Photography. Irons’ work is based on the idea of disruption, the combination of discordant genres of images in a way that upsets the viewers’ presuppositions of what they’re looking at and what it might mean. In using the photographic frame to focus on, and exaggerate, form and texture in his photographs, Irons de-locates his landscapes from their original environment. In doing so, they are removed from a distinguishable time or place, and a new dialogue of visual association is forced to emerge.
