Sam Irons
DD: How would you describe your own personal style of photography?
Sam Irons: My work focuses on the landscape in which we live, that often goes unremarked and overlooked, and attempts to defamiliarise it – hopefully touching on a little of the mystery inherent in everything around us.

DD: Why do you think you were selected by LPA futures?
Sam Irons: I would like to think that my take on the world is original yet contains something that others recognise.

DD: What are you inspired by and which photographers do you admire?
Sam Irons: I am inspired by not understanding the world, the process of perception and photography’s role in it. The Photographers I admire are those whose work seems to ask similar questions: William Eggleston, Jean-Marc Bustamente, Wolfgang Tillmans, Jeff Wall (amongst others).

LPA Futures, Open to public from 14 May to 10 June 09 ThePrintSpace, 74 Kingsland Road, London E2 8DL
