About Sara Swaty

Sara Swaty is a Los Angeles based photographer who was born and raised in Saint Louis, Missouri. She studied photography at Rochester Institute of Technology in New York, where she honed her skills in lighting and crafting images from concepts. In the spring of 2010, Swaty began a project focused on gender expression, which led her to photograph individuals within both straight and LGBT communities in an effort to capture images that question traditional gender roles and explore identities beyond the male-female binary. This photographic social commentary includes people from coast to coast, including New York, Missouri, and California. In all of her projects, Sara strives to create work that offers viewers new perspectives on social expectations and restraints within their cultural contexts.
