A huge thanks must firstly go out to Ludwig for sharing this intimate talk with the class, it was an honor to hear this photographic lecture from someone obviously so close to Sam. Thanks must also go to Ludwig and his son Oren for their dedication in ensuring the talk is available online in great quality for all to see and hear.
Ludwig Haskins gave a talk on his father’s career for #picbod discussing the creative contexts and continuing influences of Sam’s work:
“One of the greatest photographic talents of post-war photography, Sam remains more than ever, a potent influence on creative, portrait, glamour and fashion photography. He leaves a stunning artistic legacy and a very inspiring example of the photographer as the committed artist at work on every detail of his creation. See more at www.samhaskinsblog.com“
