Sam Comen: PLZ DNT TXT N DRV
The ads ran in April editions of Esquire and Seventeen magazines on double page spreads donated by Hearst Publications. The series has already garnered some recognition: Communication Arts will feature all three ads in the 2013 Communication Arts Photography Annual. The statistics presented in the layouts are startling: drivers who text are 8 times more likely to crash than drivers who do not; 24% of all car accidents involve a cell phone. Sam was particularly pleased to see the “OMG” layout placed in a teen magazine.
Sam is a commercial, editorial, and fine art photographer, with a number of significant projects. He has won numerous awards, has been twice nominated for PDN 30 and selected for the Critical Mass top 50 in 2011.
