LEAH SCHRAGER
The Digi Feminist
Fempire 13 Dec 2016

The Digi Feminist
Artist, NYC

New York City-based Leah Schrager has been described as “ a woman of her time”. Why? This multifaceted artist is battling against and commenting on a number of contemporary issues from the male gaze and digital censorship to celebrity culture, digital identity and sex. By using and photographing her own body as an art object through an alter ego called “Ona”, she reclaims her identity, her body, and her sexuality in racy selfies. Yet these steamy images posted on her Instagram account never actually reveal nude images. The self-made Instagram model ONA, coined by Schrager in 2015 signifying “online persona”, has an Instagram following of over 400k. If you come across her account of blurry crotch pictures and perfected “butt selfie” angles, you better not be afraid of the female gaze.
