DDOI garnered multiple photography awards for Sam, as he shot with an awareness that many of us lack toward our own city. Now, after the ten-year mark, Sam has ceased updating DDOI and started a Tumblr, topleftpixel, to share his images.

Sam's recent photos are just as spectacular as the first images I saw back in 2005 when I began following his work. He is able to capture the personality of every street corner and face he encounters in a way that brings them to life. The vibrancy of each frame has inspired me to look at my surroundings with new eyes.
