Chuck Samuels is a visual artist who has been exhibiting his photographs since 1980.

His prints have been exhibited extensively in Québec, Canada, and internationally, and have been widely published.
Samuels’ photographs are part of the collections of La Maison Européene de la Photographie, Paris; La Musée de la Photographie, Charleroi, Belgium; the Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography (now part of the National Gallery of Canada), Ottawa, Ontario; and Le Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec; Worcester Art Museum, Massachusetts; and the Cinémathèque québécoise, Montréal, as well as many private collections.
Chuck Samuels would like to gratefully acknowledge the support of the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec and Centre de production DAÏMÕN for their support in the research and production of the photographs in the series The Photographer.
