Sophie le Roux’s photography is almost entirely preoccupied by texture, colour, and chance. She frequently uses expired film to produce unpredictable, aleatory pictures, and is fascinated by the accidents that occur at the beginning and end of the roll: a counterintuitive blaze of colour, an elegant chaos of shapes.
The camera is encouraged to create something new out of what she’s pointed it at, so that the final result seems to merge the external world with an interior imagination: a photograph captured in the act of capturing itself. The unusual is discovered inside the usual.
Sophie's moving and still images have been published online and in print in The British Journal of Photography, AQNB, LOLA Berlin, Rolling Stone Italia, The Daily Telegraph, The Guardian, and exhibited at The Strasbourg Bienalle, Alte Münze, Air Gallery, ONCA...
