Somewhere by Sam Youkilis
Explore the world with Sam Youkilis, a documentary photographer and filmmaker living in Italy. His 528-page debut book offers a one-of-a-kind perspective on the beauty of everyday life.
Sam Youkilis has spent six years curating a vast collection of phone photographs. With a playful eye, his short videos capture the essence of human experiences, using the casual and widespread cameraphone language to evoke something profound and anthropological.
In his debut publication, Youkilis explores the depth of his observations through diverse themes, playfully highlighting the tension between categorization and chance. Using stills from his videos, Somewhere delves into everything from daily routines and unmade beds to dancing and romance, presenting a dense 500-page sequence that celebrates human connections and the essence of different places. Youkilis's meticulous attention to composition, color, light and framing pays homage to the power of photography while embracing the fleeting and sincere moments of life.
