Sam Hutchinson is an artist and photographer based in Leeds, UK, working with image-making, appropriation, sculpture and installation. Concerned with the processes of traditional and contemporary image-making, the use of found and appropriated materials and the recycled visual pollution that is subconsciously taken in through everyday commercialism. Highlighting and protesting potential failures and social phenomenons, and studying the use of authority, questions are raised about inbuilt belief/learned behaviours within society. Images and bodies of work are made everyday, or some over years, his practice a constant development and accumulation of a shifting archive,  raising concerns about the general understanding and application of current forms of readily-available image making technologies and how they blur the line between the everyday user of images, photographer, and artist.

Recent books include self-published ‘Erase Years Off Your Mind in Days’, ‘The World is Unfair & People Cannot Spell’ published by Village, and the recent launch of Serf Editions with Ella Cronk’s ‘Thinking About the Relevance of Various Objects’, through Serf Studios and Project Space, Leeds.
