Sam Gilliam, one of America's highly respected Color Field Painter and Lyrical Abstractionist artists, is photographed with the author/photographer's daughter, Olivia, beginning at 2 weeks old, and continuing to Olivia's 18th birthday. "Sam Gilliam and Olivia Photographs" is a narrative- the visual depiction of the close relationship between Olivia and Sam that started when she was a baby. It's about them and very particular to them. Equally important, the images are strong personal statements about commitment to the art and intimacy of photography over time.
