Maltese Artist, Born in 1985
It is all about the story, the story behind the image that is, which each viewer can interpret as they may. That is what matters to Jacob Sammut, be it the streets, a portrait, or a piece of fine art, what comes across is a story that has to be told. Jake tends to work predominantly in analog format, shooting mostly black and white film, a medium he believes to be more honest and real. He then proceeds to print the images in a darkroom by hand, a process forgotten by many, which gives unique results every time a print is made.
Establishing himself as one of the main analogue photographers in Malta, Jacob also regularly holds regular analogue photography workshops but also does a lot of work commissions using digital photography.
