Inbox: Sophie Lee

We love photo books and one day we found a mail from Sophie in our inbox presenting her beautiful book Élise. Enjoy!

Sophie writes:
I am an artist based in Manchester England, currently completing a BA in photography at Manchester School of Art.

Through photography, artist books and creative writing I work with the construction of narratives and lives. Often born from personal experience, this is a way for me to document the changes within my own life, playing with the realms of reality and un-reality.

Within Élise I paint a fragile portrait of a female character through photography and text. Opening the door to private fragments of a life that does not really exist. Text and image come together, when a fractured narrative takes the form of a screen play within the book piece which accompanies the images.

Élise grapples with the expectation of disappointment in a world where she exists, apparently, only for herself.
