Sofía Sebastián was born in Madrid but she currently lives in Washington DC. She was first introduced to photography while watching classic movies as a teenager. She didn't know at the time but the powerful visual storytelling of movie masters such as F.W. Murnau, Orson Welles and many others became forever embedded in her brain. Starting in 2010 she began to focus in photography as an art form in NYC; but it was only recently that she discovered her passion for street and documentary photography.
Sofia received the first Female in Focus Award from 1854 Media in 2019 and has been a finalist in various Women Street Photographers exhibits and street photography festivals, including Street Photo Milano in the category of emerging photographer, Street Photo San Francisco, and Aussie Street 2019. Her work was recently featured in a personal exhibit at BASE Milan and has been widely exhibited in various galleries in DC.
