Sophie Harris-Taylor documents the personal lives and experiences of her own and others. Her work is effortlessly truthful, approached with a sensitivity and confidence. She is renowned for imagery created with natural and ambient light sources, which lend her work an unusual softness and depth.

Typically portraiture based, with some elements of place and surrounding, Sophie uses people to express her own pre-occupations and concerns. Although seemingly diverse in subject matter and to an extent documentary, there is consistently some element of her own vulnerability.

Regardless of content, Sophie’s work is crucially bound together by aesthetics, always seeking to in some way glorify that which is not conventional.

Sophie lives in London.
