Layla Love

Layla Love’s art aims to illuminate the human consciousness. She captures life as a series of adventures and expeditions into the unknown, returning always with a greater sense of what it means to be human. Having been in both foreign prisons and royal palaces she has learned to employ the power of creative force to transcend. Her intention is to illuminate and reveal in the hopes of igniting a spark of activation. After studying journalism and global communications at Richmond International University in London she realized that visual imagery has the greatest impact in our modern communication process., At 21, she began a five-year photojournalism tour to war-torn and compromised region with a focus on the plight of women. Love sees a world where art changes people, and people change the world.

Love’s photography has been exhibited worldwide including a photographic selection to the White House permanent collection in 2008. She has shown with Eric Franck Fine Art at Paris Photo, Art Basel, the MoMa sponsored AiPAD Photography Show in New York—the longest running and foremost exhibition of fine art photography in the United States. She has participated in over 100 photographic exhibitions with world-renowned artists such as, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol, Robert Mapplethorpe, Pablo Picasso, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and Kara Walker. Love’s image, The Fullest Bloom, was adapted individually for over 30 Tiffany & Co. diamond showrooms worldwide, attesting to Love’s attention to detail and mastery of fine art printing.
