Study at the College of Fine Arts in Sydney, followed by a satisfying but grimy stint in a nickel plating workshop in Oslo, editing Indonesian commercials in Jakarta and numerous years experience within the fashion industry living in Paris, has shaped Samuel Phelps’ experience, style and influenced his art practice. Shifting again, having made the decision to move to Pakistan in 2011 practice documentary photography, Phelps worked predominantly as a press photographer during his two years in South Asia. Between 2013 - 2017 he lived in Dakar, Senegal and traveled throughout the West and Central African region undertaking assignments for humanitarian agencies and working on personal projects. He has lived with his French family in Marseille since mid 2017. He focuses predominantly on exploring Marseille's streets in an attempt to create a lasting archive of the city.
