Hey! I'm Sam. I'm 18, I'm in America.
I like acting and outer space.
Mainly Sherlock, Doctor Who, Supernatural, Merlin, LoTR/The Hobbit, Star Trek, various Marvel comic wonders, and anything else that strikes my fancy.

They design themselves into what they think is a nice picture … I wanted to show the moment of alteration, as the tourists transform themselves into an image. They seem very self-conscious about the way they look. Vulnerability is revealed. Their discomfort with their own body, as they stand there, is isolated in time and space, waiting to become a future memory.” (x)
