INSTRUCTOR: Savanna Pettengill is a photographic artist originally from Portland, Maine, and a 2014 BFA graduate from the photography program at the Maine College of Art. The influence of her birthplace is seen in varying capacities throughout her photographs. Today she lives in Brooklyn, NY creating, documenting and teaching. All of her work is a collective gathering of her spontaneous and subconscious reactions to her surroundings, woven together into visual narratives about the beauty and traumas of life, here on planet Earth.
