about

Sophie Delaporte’s work is characterized by a genuinely distinctive approach to color and the profoundly liberated, poetic and subversive eye she has always kept on her subjects. Her immediately recognizable style highly pictorial, and often employing lush color and sparkling humor promises many multifaceted readings.

Vicki Goldberg wrote about her: “Sophie Delaporte is a French photographer who is on permanently good terms with fantasy and a cheerfully offbeat approach. She has a distinctive sense of color, a fabulist’s imagination, an edge of surrealism, and a knack for ambiguous narrative”.

Since the early 90s, when the artist would begin her formative and longstanding collaborations with cutting-edge British magazine i-D, Sophie Delaporte has remained dedicated to the “play” of photography and fashion in its most straightforward definition, emphasizing fun, freedom and theatricality.

The work of Sophie Delaporte has been shown in numerous solo exhibitions around the world, including New York (Sous les Etoiles Gallery), Tokyo (Galerie 21 and HPgrp Gallery), and London (Scream Gallery).

Her Photographs have been featured in independent magazines such as Another Magazine, Dazed and Confused or Interview and different publications of Condenast, such as Vogue Japan, Vogue Russia or Vogue Italia.

Delaporte’s recent series for Comme des Garçons is currently featured in the book “Fashion Games Changers”, published by Bloomsbury in 2016, on the occasion of the exhibition at the MoMu Museum in Antwerp.
