Sofia Fernandez-Garcia

Sofia Fernandez-Garcia began her artistic career at the age of 3, when she began her dance training. Sofia pursued a dance career until the age of 20, when she took a break from dance in order to recovery from an injury. During this time, she took an introductory darkroom class at CU Denver, and immediately fell in love with photography and the community that supports it. She has been exploring her identity, passions, and interests through her photographs ever since.

Sofia specializes in analog photography and alternative processes such as lumen prints and photo transfers. Drawing from her experience from growing up in a bicultural home in the US, her photographs regularly explore the relationship between food, authenticity, culture, stereotypes, and identity. Her work is produced with the intention to spark ideas and conversations relating to cultural identity presented through food presentation.

Sofia graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography from the University of Colorado Denver in 2021. Her work has been featured in the Colorado Photographic Arts Center, Barrett Art Center, Las Lagunas Gallery, Pirate Contemporary Art, Emmanuel Gallery, and has had work installed on Auraria Campus and the CU Denver Arts building. Sofia currently resides in her hometown of Golden, Colorado.
