Sam Abell is a photographer who believes in using the light around him and minimal equipment, so that his images are captured unencumbered and with a sense of purity. Abell's work has appeared in National Geographic, and he is well known for his more artistic view of the world than his fellow photographers at the magazine. There is a definite artistry to his images. Horses aren't just horses, but a powerful focal point in an almost abstract photograph of fog. Lemons on a windowsill are rendered in a magical light, and even a line of trees along a path becomes surreal.
