ABOUT

 

SHORT BIOGRAPHY

Sophie de Vos (1992) grew up in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. While growing up she was practically always drawing, crafting, writing or telling stories – to those willing to listen, or otherwise to her My First Sony recording device.

Her interest in photography was cultivated during her teenage years, when her parents bought a digital camera for their holidays. The fascination further developed when she opted to take her Bachelors Degree at ArtEZ Institute of the Arts. She deliberately chose Fine Art over a Photography Study, in order to discover and develop other mediums as well. Having in depth lessons in painting, sculpting and film making added tremendous value to her artistic practice. However, the love for photography never lessened and it’s still her main medium. She mostly uses it to discover en depict subjects about being human.

Sophie started participating in exhibitions very early in her practice, determined to show her images and share the stories behind them.
