I’m Kayla Savage, a self portrait artist and photographer currently living in NJ. I manly work with photography as a medium and I specifically make triptych and diptych self portraits in nature or unique locations. Working by myself as a female is really liberating, for once I don’t have comments from men making me doubt myself (at least while I take these photos) and I think I avoid the “male gaze” that has seeped into the photography world. Self portraits allow me to feel or embody emotions that I can’t or don’t feel or embody in “the real world.” I can be strong, feminine, delicate, moody, and so on. Also this project has given me some really good excuses to go new places and try new things.
