Sofia (b. 1987. Monterrey, México)

Sofia is interested in photography that has a performative edge but derives from the documentary heritage. This performative edge is drawn from the empathic relationship that she shares with her subjects. Even if she never appears in the photographs, the work is always referring to her, not only through texts but also through this relationship. She is interested in the actions they do for her camera. A lot of her work revolves around intimacy and themes emerging from it, keeping the necessary link of art and life. Trying to explain her existential and psychologically journey, while she also explores the thin line between memories, fiction, time and space.
