This documentary of Ben Sams features his writings, photographs, and videos. They uniquely reveal his views about himself and his art. The first section, Artist and Art, presents an overview of him and his art. The Showcase album in The Art highlights his art. Original writings are shown in Sams Himself, along with four videos. The Biographical section includes a biography by his wife, Cynthia Sams, and a detailed resume. I offer a personal comment and acknowledgements in the Notes section.
