About Sophie

Sophie Howarth combines an observational documentary style of photography with art.

Sophie completed her formal study at The National Art School, Sydney in 1993. She has specialised in Music Photography and has had the opportunity to photograph and exhibit some of the world’s most important musicians, festivals and tours. Her book ‘Peace Love and Brown Rice A Photographic History of the Big Day Out’ documents her time on the road with the event, as official photographer. Over 8,000 copies have been sold. Sophie worked in advertising for a decade. Her work appears in editorials, books and exhibitions. She is currently in pre production for her book ‘Soaring The Golden Eagle Festival of Mongolia’ which is a study of reverie experienced in the festival environment.

"I like the way I can use photography to tell a story. The feeling that was infused in the picture at the moment it was taken, embellishes the story. This is the art of photography for me."

Sophie's current exhibition - Behind the Lens is on display at the Glasshouse Regional Gallery from 11 December 2021 until 6 February 2022.
