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 Rome.
She received in 2019 the award GIOVANI CREATIVI, for the category of photography, as one of the best twelve Italian creative talents under 30. At the moment she also works for a contemporary art gallery in Rome.

Her work focuses on the relationship between human beings and the landscape, and the extent to which they influence each other. Travel is essential to Podestà's research. It is through this dimension that she is able to discover unique and remote places, selecting destinations that she knows will inspire her and to which she then returns via the medium of her photography.
