Shelby Savage was born in San Antonio, Texas and later moved to Charlotte, North Carolina where she spent the majority of her childhood. The rich and varying cultures, of the Texas and North Carolina landscapes, have heavily influenced the way in which she views the world through her lens.

Her current work explores the experience of living alone and spending the majority of an individual’s time with their own thoughts. This exploration of intimate space is meant to provoke thought about the time we spend with ourselves and the way we collect memories in our own homes.

She loves corgis, autumn, playing the harmonica and watermelon.

She currently lives in Columbia, South Carolina where she is a junior in the BFA Photography Program at the University of South Carolina. Her projected graduation is in the spring of 2015.
