Soraya Matos is a travel, lifestyle, culture photographer based in San Francisco, California but always on the go. She defines herself as a 'hodge-podge' of a human and is fiercely passionate about social change, food justice, and sustainability. Born to Portuguese immigrants and growing up quad-lingual pushed her to develop a curiosity to understand the world and the people on it. After pursuing a degree in Visual Sociology from Wheaton College MA, she decided to pack up all her belongings and drive through the United States on a quest for the American Dream. She's still searching for it.. More than a traveler of the globe, she is an explorer of ideas, using photography to document the full spectrum of the human experience while making us wonder about our society in an ever-expanding, interconnected world. When not behind the camera, Soraya can be found floating in the ocean, tending to her bees, exploring a new cook book, or getting lost around the Pacific coast.
