John Savoia (b. 1986) is a fine arts photographer born and based in Boston. His photographs seek to create representation for all experiences of bodies and identity, and uplift and champion those who do not see themselves or people like them represented in the fine arts. His work also explores how humanity carries itself while unaware of an outside gaze, as well as the passage of time in still images.
