A resident of Haines Junction, a passion for photography has been instilled in Marty Samis from an early age. His photographic education is largely self-taught, the result of experimentation and experience.

Marty’ works are composites of up to eight individual images, layered with computer software. By focusing on multiple visual, natural elements in this way, he hopes to suggest a new way of appreciating a landscape – one that gives viewers a more comprehensive sense of place than would a single image or idea.

The primary inspiration to create his work comes from the desire to capture the vast and dynamic landscapes of the Kluane region. These montages attempt to evoke the mood of the area. Each one interprets the feeling of a specific part of the region and ties an animal to its habitat. At the same time, the layers in each piece permit a broader reading, allowing each viewer their own personal interpretation of the boreal forest.

He opts for printing on metal, which preserves the image by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets. The ultra-hard scratch-resistant surface is waterproof and can be cleaned easily. Metal prints come with float mount hangers attached to the back of the print that allow the print to sit out from the wall and are ready to hang.
