The surreal self-portraits of the Boston based photographer Alicia Savage, explore the concept of travel and transcendence. Her magically romantic images show the illusion of flying, the invasion of clouds in interiors and fantastic landscapes that combine to create surreal photographs. Although each image is a complex self-portrait, the images invite the viewer to imagine itself in her place, encouraging a shared quest of self-discovery.
