Sophie started to take pictures about three years ago, shooting a self-portrait daily for one year. When she made it to day 211, she realised she had started turning her camera away from her, towards other people: "Photographing other people began to consume more of my time and interest, so it felt like the right point to leave the self-portraits behind. I felt like I had taken what I could from experimenting with them (and there’s only so many angles of my face I could take!).’’
There is something in her compositions that’s innately provocative, yet relaxed and serene. Her glimpse into the daily life of a group of eight girls in Tottenham Hale or the vivid energy of a young boy, full of dreams and need of experimentation, are just one part of the series that consolidated Sophie in the professional scene, reflecting an ease to her that is alluring, confident and absolutely natural.
