SOFIA’s inaugural exhibition, presented as part of 2016’s 20th Annual CONTACT Photography Festival in Toronto, Canada, features never-before seen work of its 8 original founding members, each presenting unique interpretations of the theme,  “Bad Behaviour” with visual explorations into the ideas of adolescence, social rebellion, cultural expectations, regret, fears, secrets and emotional catharsis.

S.O.F.I.A. announces 2017 Mentorship Program

We are excited to announce our first mentorship program! 

Women!  Are you an emerging photographer?  If so, this is for you!

 The objective of the SOFIA mentorship program is to help aspiring women photographers develop their voice as an artist, hone their craft, and create a new body of personal work.

Participating members of SOFIA will work closely with one candidate for one full year, starting in March 2017.  Mentoring photographers will meet with their mentee on a monthly basis to discuss and offer guidance on the work being produced. At the end of the program, each mentee will have a new body of work that will be shown through a SOFIA platform (TBD).

 This program is open to emerging photographers who self identifies as a woman/womyn/womxn , of any age, in any geographic location.

The deadline for applications is 5:00PM EDT, Monday, January 16th, 2017.

Participating members are:

  • May Truong
  • Michelle Yee
  • Raina Kirn
  • Brooke Wedlock
  • Regina Garcia
  • Kerry Shaw
  • Angela Lewis

Interested applicants must submit:

A cover letter indicating which SOFIA photographer they'd like to work with and why.  Applicants can opt to list up to two photographers they would like to work with (we get it -- it's hard to choose!) however, please note that  successful applicants will only be working with one of the two photographers.

• their resume / CV

• a 500 word essay stating why they want to participate in the mentorship program
