(B. Los Angeles, 1975)
Savannah's self-portrait work addresses body-positivity, the male/female gaze, objectification and censorship, especially on social media. Her solo show in 2017, Nevertheless, She Persisted, at Mulherin New York, presented her uncensored pin-ups and black and white work out of the confines of social media where they have been repeatedly flagged and censored. Savannah was interviewed recently on the National Coalition Against Censorship's Arts Advocacy podcast. As an activist, Savannah has dedicated her time to photographing important civil rights issues since 2012 including Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter, People's Climate March, Anti-Trump protests and the Women's March.
Savannah's work has been published in The Abolitionist, The Nation, LA Weekly, Forbes, Bomb Magazine, Vice, W, Shindig!, Dazed, Bullett, Hype, Billboard, THE Magazine, Huffington Post, New York Magazine and D/railed.
