The work of Samantha Wall has been in black and white. The collection Let Your Eyes Adjust to the Dark shows stark contrasts in portrait style illustration. The ink used for the artwork exposes only partial expressions on the subjects.

Each subject looks off, never directly forward. Head and shoulders are in the portrait, the lines of their bodies accented with ink in layers. The people look like they are made of shadow, as one would see them in the dark.
