About Sam Dobrow
Sam Dobrow is an entrepreneur and an award winning contemporary photographic artist who lives and works in the artist village of Coconut Grove, Florida. His works can be found in museums and private collections. Sam’s artwork begins in the camera and evolves into images with intensely beautiful constructs amplified by his emotions and perceptions of the world and its inhabitants. Whether it is a street scene, portrait or figurative work, Sam captures beauty by presenting subjects shaped by light, framed by strong graphical elements, and emotionally supercharged by the thoughtful application of color.
According to Sam, the art of photography begins with a feeling, followed by seeing through the camera with anticipation, and ultimately developing an image that speaks to that feeling. Learn more about Sam Dobrow [here].
