In 2017, Meg Allen finished her first major photographic body of work called “BUTCH”, a series of more than one hundred environmental portraits of butch women and non-binary queers. She self published a monograph in 2017 and exhibited pieces from the series in both the United States and Europe. It has been most recently featured in a six page article by Germany’s L-Mag, a print magazine of lesbian culture, in January of 2020. The Huffington Post, I-D Online and San Francisco’s KQED Arts also featured the work in articles as it was shown around the San Francisco Bay Area between 2014-2017. In the fall of 2018 she traveled to New York City to explore the possibility of an MFA in Photography. Meg attended a two month workshop at the International Center for Photography and found the artistic environment of New York so invigorating and necessary to her artistic development that she moved there permanently in January 2019. She continues to work and shoot in the city and is currently exploring new themes and ideas for her next personal project.
