Zaria Love is a queer, disabled black femme, based in Los Angeles, CA, who uses photography to conquer fears & doubts and to tell a story of transcendence. A Los Angeles transplant by way of Washington, D.C., Zaria was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis back in 2018. While this may have disrupted her work as a photographer, it did not stop it. Zaria raises her voice as an advocate for queer creatives to express the freedom and acceptance that she finds in the photography art form. Her style warmly embraces the eye: inviting the viewer to move along with the subject or see what they see.
