Samm Blake

Melbourne based, Perth photographer Samm Blake has become a recent photographic inspiration of mine. Her photography and documentary skills are incredible and she seems to capture the most intimate and life changing moments with absolute precision. She recently traveled to Burma with her parents and 95 year old Harold Martin to visit the graves of his mates who he worked with on the Burma Thai Railway as prisoners of war in WWII. 

Watch the video, it's only 2 and a half minutes.

  1. This is lovely! My great great uncle (husband of great great aunty who gave me all those lovely vintage sewing things) was a prisoner of war in China for many years. Interesting to see a small angle from someone else who had been through something similar, as I have only heard a small part of the story from my Aunty who believed he was dead at the time. Thanks for the share :)
