Born 1990 in Cambridgeshire, UK. Sam Laughlin's practice is concerned with a variety of forms and processes both natural and man-made. Much of his recent work focusses on natural processes and animal behaviour. Laughlin has exhibited widely both in the UK and internationally, including at the Brighton Photo Fringe 2016 where he received the Danny Wilson Memorial Award, and more recently at Jerwood Space and Impressions Gallery. In January 2017 he was awarded the Jerwood/Photoworks award to fund the production of new work. He works mainly on artistic commissions, most recently for John Hansard Gallery, Towner Gallery and GRAIN Projects.
