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.
