SOPHIA MARIA FAVELA

b. 1997 Amsterdam, The Netherlands

ABOUT

As a young, bicultural woman, I’m questioning the world I am growing up in. I am looking for answers and ways to express my critical view on western society through topics such as identity, culture, and women. This quest results in vulnerable images with a rough edge characterized by an interest in honesty.

Using photography as a tool, I am searching for the relationship between personal, intimate stories and current social issues. My work allows space for my activistic beliefs and visual expression to coexist. With the goal of opening a dialogue, I invite the viewer to question themselves and their surroundings.

As I develop myself as an artist, I continue to widen my references and expand my environment, allowing me to create more inclusive work and represent a realness of all human beings.
