Artist Profile

Born 1971, Whyalla, Australia

Lives & Works – Melbourne (Brunswick, Wurundjeri)


Samantha Everton’s tightly choreographed photographs create visual narratives that have profound cross-cultural, sociological and psychological implications. The artist’s vivid style, described as ‘magic realism’, has a cinematic and surreal quality that pushes her subjects further and further from reality. They inhabit an uncanny world that is at once familiar and foreign, real and symbolic, and it feels as though our forgotten dreams have been projected into the picture plain. The unerring integrity of Everton’s photographic processes and her masterful technical ability have been internationally acclaimed and extensively awarded. 


Born in Whyalla, South Australia, and raised in central Queensland, Everton graduated from RMIT and has exhibited across Australia and internationally. She is the recipient of multiple awards, including the Px3 Paris International Photography Award (2010, 2014), Moran Contemporary Art Prize (Highly Commended 2009), Olive Cotton Photography Prize (Finalist 2011), London International Creative Competition (Finalist 2010) and the Head On Portrait Award (Third Place 2015).
