about sally


Photographer Sally Savage is best known in Rockland County for the photo-journalism she has contributed to just about every aspect of life and change there since the late 1960s. Also a fine-art photographer who still makes her own black and white print darkroom prints, Savage has exhibited, published and taught photography widely throughout the tri-state area. A home teaching/rental black and white darkroom is still in operation in spite of the digital age!!


Overseas assignments have  included a trip to Jamaica for a photo story on the Food for the Poor program; a visit to the heart of Australia, and a photo essay on an unique handicapped childrenís facility in London, England. However, Savageís most extensive work has been to follow the changes in her own small village of Piermont on the river in the Hudson Valley. There, she has recorded changes since the late 1960s.  

 Savage was awarded the Rockland County Executive Arts Award: Visual Artist in 2001, and her work has twice been selected by the Rockland County Art in Public Places program. She was trained at Londonís School of Printing and Graphic Arts in England, and most of her adult life has been spent in Piermont, N.Y. where she raised three children and developed her photography business.
