Sam Taylor-Johnson

Filmmaker and photographer Sam Taylor-Johnson rose to prominence as one of the rule-breaking Young British Artists (YBAs) of the 1990s Brit Art scene. She went on to capture public imagination with her one-hour video portrait of David Beckham sleeping, a film that explores masculinity, vulnerability and fame itself. A two-times cancer survivor, there is a biographical narrative in her work about the body and identity, loss and hope - sometimes subtle, sometimes overt, but always witty, thoughtful and moving. And, today - although the mother of four professes to spend much of her life in sneakers - the symbolism and drama of fashion and clothes remain a constant in her work.   See for privacy and opt-out information.
