ï»¿Bulgarian-born Sophia moved to Australia more than 20 years ago, and she now lives in Sydney with her husband and two children. She has a Masters Degree in Philology and one in the Science of Dramatic Art from the National Academy of Theatre and Film in Sofia, and though she worked in a number of corporate environments when she moved to Australia, she always stayed true to her first love of storytelling. â€œWhether it was in the form of the written word, stage performance or visual narrating, I have accumulated a lifetime of knowledge about world culture and art and now, through photography, I have found a way of expressing my stories visually," says Sophia. Sophia was tutored by the prominent food photographer George Seper and Sophia believes that she owes him a lot for giving her the right tools and releasing the artist in her. "The art of food photography is more than just documenting the obvious. I see it as a way of conveying feelings, as a way of taking my audience to different places of emotions," says Sophia. "I look at my photography as a still shot of some story-book or an old motion picture. With every image, I welcome the viewers to enter the world of food redolent of memories, emotions, moods and thoughts; to evoke the depth of our simple consumer-being and take a different look at the simple things that nourish us as human beings and thinking creatures."
