Rickner is a Minneapolis based narrative photographer who draws inspiration from intimate human interaction to inform her imagery. She works in analog and digital processes, utilizing both a 4x5 large format camera and DSLR. In particular, the large format camera allows for a slower meditative photographic process: an essential component in her portraiture. Samantha's work navigates complex human experience and emotions through collaboration with her subjects.
