Sofi, Localgrapher in New York City

photo icon


I am shooting candid, light and airy portraits, concentrating on catching emotions, natural beauty and uniqueness of people.


That is pretty random, I love all types of bags – backpacks, shoulder bags, smaller bags, wallets – I am incredibly satisfied when I see a bag that is beautiful and practical, that combines the materials I enjoy, that is carefully designed with all the clips and zippers
Another somewhat random “like” is horses. I adore these animals, so graceful and strong, yet so gentle and tender, they carry the wisdom and fierce of the land as our great mother. I watch them for hours, I photograph them, work with them and study them.
Third thing that I like, that is incredibly rare in our times, is the “old” fashion. I don`t mean just clothes, I mean the fashion to respect another person greatly, to speak to each other, using proper language and beautiful sentences, to respect the manners, to pay attention to detail and to seek beauty in everything.

Recommended places:

One of my most favorite places is Dumbo, combined with the Manhattan Bridge, the Brooklyn Bridge and Brooklyn Heights. Dumbo is a place where old warehouses were transformed into modern shops and cafes. It transitions into the Brooklyn Heights, a historical district, that showcases the old Brooklyn houses, the real ones, with cobblestone streets and cozy cafes. The Bridges are great, but a little pro tip here – you get an amazing view OF Dumbo, Brooklyn Bridge and lower Manhattan FROM the Manhattan Bridge. And it is a lot less crowded, though, somewhat loud with trains coming.
I recently discovered Staple Street – a little hidden space with an interesting skybridge crossing between the buildings. Gets you a feel of old-old Manhattan.
The lower part of Manhattan is also great, also covered in cobblestone and a variety of historical buildings. It also counts as a historical district, so the style and the feel of the harbor city is carefully preserved. There stands a great ship, an access to the docks, and the Hudson River breeze helps to bring you back in time.
