Sophie Ebrard’s photographs are as eclectic and full of life as the photographer herself. Born in the Alps and currently living in London, she started her career in advertising before making the transition into photography. It was a wise decision! Since then, Sophie has captured all aspects of life on film; from the smoky hills of La Clusaz and the bustling streets of Thailand, to the alternative nine-to-fives of the residents of Cape Verde, and the skating culture of Brixton Beach. Her most recent work has taken her to porn sets in L.A., Barcelona and Wales, but the images she produces are far from what you might expect to see.

Experimenting with natural light and preferring the surprise-factor of film for her personal work are two factors among many that give Sophie’s images a sense of genuine warmth. This is both rare and beautiful amongst the current climate of overly produced and manipulated images. Yet she is not flippant in her art, choosing to connect with the subjects in her photographs on a personal level. Even her pictures that are absent of people aren’t without their own touch of personality and narrative. Sophie’s work is straight from the heart, and comes from her unyielding passion for photography, storytelling and light.

Sophie spoke to us about the thrill of meeting new people, her love of the uniquely London vibe and her favorite place to go on holiday. She was also kind enough to give us some insight into her current project…
