Sophie Caligari

 

Australian photographer Sophie Caligari’s works explore themes of antiquity, memory, scientific study, human form as sculpture, and photographic theory. Known mostly for her wet plate collodion practice, Sophie’s use of meticulous composition and considered lighting design gives her subjects the governing voice in her work. Predominately exploring human and botanical subjects, Sophie’s work evokes ideas of femininity, nostalgia and fragility while transporting the observer to a place often described as ‘enigmatic and present yet wistful and sentimental’.

 

Trained by Ellie Young and Craig Tuffin, the best the Australian industry has to offer, she is currently Australia’s youngest commercial wet plate collodion photographer. While creating new alliances between cutting-edge LED studio lighting and antique processes, Sophie is bringing the practice of alternative process to the forefront of the Australian industry.
