About Sophia Henriksson
I'm Sophia! A passionated theologian and a woman in ministry, a street evangelista such as a freestyle artist - living in Stockholm, Sweden. My focus is people & portraits, and to find the gold in the downtrodden and the outcast from different cultures and communities. My interest for raw photography got me to collaborate with the french artist JR and his team in 2012 on a project called "Inside Out -The People's art Project". It's a global project transforming messages of personal identity into works of art. My Inside Out-project was made in the criminal streets of Woodstock, Cape Town, South Africa. Another great opportunity I was given around the same time was to hold an exhibition called "The word on the streets" at The Grand Beach Africa Gallery, Cape Town, SA - a selection of portraits from my world tours. My wish is to hold another exhibition where I would blow up my photographs big and beautifully and also one day publish my very own book! Let's explore and run with whats in our hands.
