Biography

Sophie Delaporte, b. 1971, is a French fashion photographer living and working between Paris and New York.  The depth of color, staging, gestures and simple fun of her imagery evoke the world of storytelling.  Delaporte likes to imagine situations that do not exist, creating a photographic language where sweetness balances innocence, and suggesting an alternative fantasy vision of fashion photography.

Sophie Delaporte’s work is frequently featured in numerous books and publications such as Another Magazine; Vogue Germany, Italy, Turkey, Japan, and India; Interview; Harper's Bazaar; and I-D Magazine, with whom she has regularly collaborated since the 1990s.  Her series Needlework was featured in the book "The Art of Fashion Photography" by Patrick Remy, published by Prestel in 2013.  Sophie Delaporte studied photography and film at the Ecole nationale supérieure Louis-Lumière.
