Sam Gregg looks at Great Britain from a distance with an intimate look

Unnamed 12

Sam Gregg (b. 1990) is a London born & based portrait and documentary photographer. With a particular interest in marginalised and dispossessed communities, Gregg’s work is both immersive and removed, taking refuge within complex environments as a means of following narratives that reflect on his own culture. His work has been published and exhibited internationally, including at the Leica gallery Milan and most recently at Photo Vogue Festival. He is currently working on several multi-media projects both at home and abroad.

About ‘Blightly’:

I’ve spent so much time abroad that I’ve almost forgotten what it means to be British.

Come to think of it, maybe I’ve never known.

So I wander the streets in search of my heritage, flitting from greasy spoons to pie & mash shops, from north to east and back again.

Maybe I’m looking in the wrong places, maybe I’m not.

Perhaps one day I’ll find it, at the bottom of a translucent parcel of chips or in the calcified dregs of my tea.

This is me,

simply trying to find out.
