In her portraiture, photographer Sophie Harris-Taylor has a knack for capturing personality and dynamics in a beautifully natural way. This is exemplified in her series Sisters, which saw her shooting 80 pairs and groups of sisters over two years, and in turn depicting their unique and intimate relationships.
“I think most of my personal work comes from some sort of self-exploration,” she explained, speaking at Nicer Tuesdays. “I work a lot with people, and capture aspects of them that I can relate to.” Reflecting on her own difficult relationship with her sister, that’s left them “at a distance,” she saw this project as a way to work through that and depict all sorts of sisterly bonds, a relationship “often overlooked”.
On her creative approach, Sophie said, over the years, her photographs “have become less snapshot and more considered, and battle the balance of documentation and something slightly more staged. Sisters sits somewhere in the middle of those two things. I’m always seeking emotion and honesty, and I’m drawn to moments of vulnerability.”
