Sofia Podestà is a photographer based in Rome, Italy. She graduated at the Art History faculty of the University of Roma Tre in 2018, with a thesis on the photography of Luigi Ghirri, Guido Guidi and Vittore Fossati. She studied photography through the filter of Art History to have a more cross-sectional vision.
In 2018 she was selected to attend the Summer School by SISF and the Advanced training at MAXXI museum .
In 2019 she received the award GIOVANI CREATIVI, for the category of photography, as one of the twelve best Italian creative talents under 30. At the moment she also works for a contemporary art gallery in Rome.
Sofia's works are mostly focused on the measurement of the relationship between the human and the landscape and how they interact with each other.
