The photography of Sophie Ebrard overflows with curiosity. Born in the French Alps, Ebrard is a self-taught photographer and director. Alongside her on-going flow of personal projects, she produces high-end advertising campaigns for world-leading agencies.
Taken over a period of four years, Ebrard’s series “It’s Just Love” documents a backstage view of the porn industry. Influenced by the colour palettes of Old Masters painting, Ebrard’s work is compellingly elegant. Following this ground-breaking project, Ebrard’s project “I didn’t want to be a Mum” continued her tender approach to controversial topics, documenting maternal ambivalence in all its complexity. Influenced by photographers such as Annie Liebovitz and Sophie Calle, Ebrard fuses cinematic shots with a multisensory approach- incorporating sound, texture and scent in her exhibitions.
Ebrard’s solo shows have been exhibited at KG+, Kyoto and Unseen, Amsterdam. Her work has also been exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery, London as part of the Taylor Wessing Portrait prize. Ebrard continues to live and work in Amsterdam and London.
