Sophie Jane Stafford is a Hull born Photographer known for her honest portraits and artistic based documentary projects on community stories internationally.
A theme running through her projects looks at the Conflicts Between Modern And Traditional Culture. Change or modernity can be used interchangeably they are usually presented in two forms, either positive or negative.
Sophie is fascinated with what makes tradition so important to people, and how these communities respond to change over time. Traditions today are our most prized possessions, they remind us of our past, our roots, and our family. Looking at communities that exemplify and thrive on their development, Sophie wants to challenge common misconceptions and judgements, and provide a platform for the subjects to tell their story.
