|A solo show of young documentary photographer Sophie Green opens at Messums Wiltshire|
Sophie Green, Boy & Cockerel. Giclee Print. Edition of 8, 20.32 x 30.55 cm (S).
TISBURY.- Sophie Greens photographs celebrate the creativity, uniqueness and eccentricities of under- represented subcultures in Britain, often in playful and light ways. Her camera is a way to access people and sceneries she is drawn to, immortalising fashion styles, poses and accessories deployed in social gatherings. Merging portraiture and still life images, Greens photographs are imbued with a feeling of surprise and a love for the theatrical and the unexpected. Her work pushes the boundaries of traditional social documentary with a balance of spontaneity and styled constructions. Her images cleverly enhance the colours, shapes and textures that characterise the environments she encounters. Combining works from the series Gypsy Gold, A Day at the Races and Dented Pride in a unique display, the exhibition Showtime offers a glimpse into the joyful and tender photographic practice of Sophie Green.
I love the small details a tiny handbag, a mans muscular pecks, theatrical hair extensions that give a clue to a scene and the people who participate in it. When you view these details together, they give you an insight into that world. --Sophie Green
Sophie Green (b. 1991) is a social documentary and art photographer based in London. Following a degree in photography at London College of Fashion, her work has explored aspects of British culture and communities who are drawn together by a shared identity, passion or cultural heritage. She strives to seek out the glue that unites these individuals together as a collective; leading her to explore the realms of travellers, streetcar culture, banger and stock car racing, arm wrestlers, British cowboy culture, Aladura Spiritualist African churches and congregations and afro hair salons. Many of her projects develop over several years to deepen her understanding of the communities she is photographing and honour the subjects lives. Green is drawn to the details that surround her subjects as a way of revealing a deeper story of person and place.
