About Sam   

       Sam Tamborello (b.1996) is a documentary photographer from New York. Through her work, she captures scenes of what appears to be choreographed chaos. Tamborello has been focusing on a recent series documenting women that are a part of the underrepresented roller derby community in New York. Through her work she captures, the fierce high energy expressions of the athletes. She has evolved her work into including a more refined use of strobe lighting paired with her documentary shooting style.

      Her inspiration derives from seeking stability in the world around her. By quickly capturing visual memories, this provides a foundation for which she is able to understand the places and people around her.

     Sam has been published in Hue Magazine (Fall 2017). Her work has been displayed in the Infinite Scroll Exhibition (2016) at The Fashion Institute of Technology. She is currently working with environmental portrait photographer Josh Andrus specializing in on location production. Sam has a BFA in Photography (2018) from the Fashion Institute of Technology with minors in Film and Media and Art History.

Education: B.F.A. in Photography from Fashion Institute of Technology
