Sam Taylor Johnson


Sam Taylor-Johnson (b. 1967) is a contemporary British artist known for her accomplishments across photography and film.  

As a key figure in the Young British Artists (YBA) movement, Taylor-Johnson pushes artistic boundaries through her multimedia approach which spans photography, video installations, and films. Through evocative storytelling, the artist frequently challenges societal norms and explores human emotion, introspection, and societal constructs.

In 2007, Taylor-Johnson collaborated with a group of artists including Marina Abramovińá and Richard Prince to craft "Destricted," an anthology film exploring the intersection of art and pornography.

Each artist contributed an original erotic short film to the project, which was compiled to create the final film. This untitled work is a still taken from Taylor-Johnson's short film, "Death Valley," which features a voyeuristic portrayal of a man exploring self-stimulation and pleasure alone in the desert.

In 2011, Taylor-Johnson was honored with the appointment as Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in the Birthday Honours for her contributions to the arts.
