Sofía Fernández Stenström
Sofía Fernández Stenström spent her childhood and adolecence between Sweden and Spain due to her parents nationalities, a condition that led her to question her roots and identity through photographic documentation.
At an early age she ventured as a photography assistant in the studio of Tomás Giden, a period where she trained in photographic production and postproduction. After, she studied at the College of Distributive Trades, in London, England, where she took interest in the experimentation of various photographic resources such as digital, and instant photography.
Her artistic production stands out for its consistency, as well for addressing issues related to personal identity, mainly from the representation of women. Her photographs, predominantly black and white, are intended to operate as a timeless record of intimate and personal encounters between the portrayed characters and herself.
For the artist, photography has been an instrument of self-knowledge and understanding of the other.
Throughout her career she has participated in several art exhibitions in countries such as Spain, Sweden and Italy. She currently is based in Barcelona, Spain
