Surreal Self-Portraits of a Traveling Photographer

Boston-based photographer Alicia Savage takes intriguing and surreal self-portraits wherever she may be. Having discovered her passion for photography in 2009, Savage seems to be attached to her camera, taking it everywhere she goes, ready to snap a shot of herself in each unique environment. She says, “While traveling my goal is to always create Art while on the go from my surroundings – no matter where I may be.”

While her collection of work labeled as Imagined shows a much more creative and preplanned side to her portfolio, rich with surreal elements, her Morning Light series reflects her passion for photography at all times. Whether she's couch surfing in France, staying at a hostel in Portugal, bunking with a friend in Canada, or backpacking through Spain, she captures the beginning of her day as she climbs out of bed and takes a moment to recognize her surroundings.
