“My name is Sarah Allegra. I am a conceptual, fine art photographer and self-portrait artist in Los Angeles.
I take photos to tell stories, to show raw emotions, and to move my audience. I am heavily inspired by fairy tales, myths, legends, the Pre Raphaelites, current music and books I read.
I love to portray strong female characters who take matters into their own hands; who do not wait to be rescued. But above all, I love to bring realistic characters characters to life.”
“Aerials, in the sky, When you lose small mind, You free your life.
I am often inspired by music, and the song Aerials by System Of A Down inspired this photo.”
“This self portrait was inspired by the Wax Mannequin song Dustboy’s New Machine.”
“This photo gets its inspiration from Tennyson’s epic poen The Lady Of Shalott. I took this in my bathtub which I filled partially with milk and dumped in a ton of ribbons and roses from the garden.”
“I recently discovered Emilie Autumn who I sort of wish I could be when I grow up. She wrote a wonderful, dark, dramatic song called Opheliac. The chorus has an intense screaming, fit-throwing quality to it, which I wanted to try and capture in this self portrait.”
