"Sophia creates a stream of profiles lining the wall. The images are shown with the smallest detail on glass and speak to the universal way of communicating. This tried and true act of the profile, the human form is as universal as it is unique. But I am not an observer, I do not feel as though they are me and I am them. Rather, I feel as though this is a call to thought, an analysis of human beings. The glass they are printed on becomes a massive slide for me to peer at through a microscope. These objects are both precious and industrial with large bolts keeping them in place but their very existence borders on fragile." - Tyler School of Art photography blog
