Sophie Harris Taylor

Photographer Overview

Documenting the personal lives and experiences of her own and others, Sophie’s work is effortlessly truthful, approached with a sensitivity and confidence. She is renowned for her images 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, she 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, Harris-Taylors’s work is crucially bound together by aesthetics, always seeking to in some way glorify that which is not conventional.

Sophie's had two books published, 'Sisters' and 'MTWTFSS (Chapter 1). She's been selected for the Taylor Wessing Prize and the BJP Portrait of Britain and Creative Review Photography annual amongst others. Some of her commercial clients including Sport England, Versus Arthritis, Microsoft and Lloyds bank.

Sophie lives in London and received both her MA and BA (Hons) in Photography from Kingston University.
