Artist Statement

Samantha Kreindler

Samantha Kreindler lives in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She has worked as a designer, photographer and artist for more than ten years. Samantha is inspired by the world around her. The beauty of nature, the depth and simplicity in the eyes of an animal, the complexities of the human spirit, the light and dark in the world. Photography as a medium allows her to observe and capture a moment in time as she sees it and bring others there to share the moment and to be moved. "Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still." Dorothea Lange

Samantha's current work focuses on animals living on Pennsylvania and New Hampshire farms. She spends time walking the grounds, listening to and watching the animals interact with their environment, their work and the individuals who work the farm. In doing so she hopes learn more about farm life, the beauty and hardships, and the souls of all who dwell and work on them.
