Samantha Geballe’s self-portraits provide the viewer with a very powerful, intimate look at her both physically and psychologically. These photographs explore an introspective view of the artist and function to combat misogynistic female beauty standards. In her own words: “My work focuses on conceptual portraiture, allowing for the exploration of human emotion from the inside out. I am currently working on an on-going self-portrait series focused on body image and healing that challenges viewers to question what is means to accept oneself.” Her images are telling of her struggles and eloquent in doing so.

Samantha Geballe is based in Los Angeles, CA. She purchased her first camera and started shooting in 2006.
