Sophia Maria Favela (1997) is a socially engaged photographer, focused on topics such as identity, culture, and women. Her photographs capture her search for the relationship between personal, intimate stories and current social issues. The vulnerable images with a rough edge are characterized by a duality that is present within the artist as well, due to her cultural background. Through her work, Favela creates space for her activistic beliefs and visual expression to co-exist, challenging the viewer to question themselves, their surroundings and privileges.
