Layla Love: Illuminating Consciousness Through Artistic Adventures
Step into a world where the human spirit intertwines with the depths of artistic expression, and allow Layla Love to guide you on an extraordinary journey of self-discovery. As an artist, Love's work goes beyond mere aesthetics, aiming to illuminate the consciousness of humanity itself. Her creations capture life as a series of adventures and expeditions into the unknown, always returning with a profound understanding of what it means to be human.
We often moved when I was growing up. My mother gifted me my first little camera at seven years old, and ever since, I have taken photographs of people & places I love as a way to hold onto those moments that were worthy of immortalizing.
At twelve years old, I found a mentor to teach me how to develop film and print images. I began immersing myself in the darkroom - it is still one of my favorite places.
I have since had the honor of partaking in world-renowned art shows, such as Paris Photo, Basel, and AiPAD.
Through serendipity combined with years of pouring myself into my art, I have showcased alongside artists such as Picasso, Warhol, and Basquiat. Seeing my art hung alongside Henri Cartier-Bresson - who brought us the Decisive Moment- was a dream come true.

We Are Never the
Same Person Twice
I find inspiration through living in diverse environments- those that teach me about rewilding, learning to walk with confidence, alone by the light of the moon. From that stillness, I return to the bustling metropolis, the marble jungles. I explore paradox and juxtapositions. I seek that which resonates.
