Sophie Gibbings


Sophie Gibbings is a photographer from Santa Barbara, California. She spent her summers in Maine where she learned how to darkroom print at the Maine Media Workshops and College. She learned alternative processes from her mentor, Christopher James in Santa Fe and Boston. She received her BFA in photography from Lesley University College of Art and Design (formally The Art Institute of Boston). Her primary foundation is based in traditional black and white printing, but she is also interested in alternative process, primarily wet plate collodion. The human connection to a landscape and the return to nature are themes prevalent in her work.
