Graduated from the University of Brighton with an MA in Photography, Sophie has specialised in underwater photography to combine a love of the water with a childlike flare for creativity through her photographic practise. Drawing inspiration from film, art history and memory, Sophie integrates her research into capitalism and its effects on humanity into her work through visual metaphors and ethereal experience underwater. By removing the noise, visibility and gravity that comes with everyday life, the body is free to express and experience life in an imagined world. Breathing becomes the only thing that matters – and the absence of breath becomes as important as the breath itself.
