#FOTS20 SCHEDULE

STREET SLAM WITH THE DC SPC
FRIDAY, MAY 29, NOON

Sofía was born in Madrid but she currently lives in Washington DC. She was first introduced to photography while watching classic movies as a teenager. She didn’t know at the time but the powerful visual storytelling of movie masters such as F.W. Murnau, Alfred Hitchcock, Orson Welles, Louis Malle, Francois Truffaut, Luis Buñuel, and many others became forever embedded in her brain. Starting in 2011 she began to focus in photography as an art form, but it was only recently that she discovered her passion for street photography.

Sofia’s work has been exhibited internationally in both solo and group shows. She received the first Female in Focus Award from 1854 Media in 2019 and has been a finalist in various street photography festivals, including Street Photo Milano in the category of emerging photographer, Street Photo San Francisco, and Aussie Street 2019. Her work was featured in a personal exhibit at BASE Milan and has been shown in various galleries in Washington DC.
