Sam Taylor-Wood

Sam Taylor-Wood is an accomplished visual artist, photographer, and filmmaker based in London. She is primarily known her for multi-screen video works, including Crying Men, which features many of Hollywood's leading men crying on camera.

In the celebrated film Still Life, an impossibly beautiful bowl of fruit decays at an accelerated pace via time-lapse editing, transforming a timeless scene into a visceral memento mori. On loan from the Doris and Donald Fisher Collection.
