Focusing on the theme of feminine masculinity for the last eight years, Sophia Wallace has received accolades from ArtSlant and American Photography for her stunning
portraits. “I have a personal mission to show butch/gender queer/tomboy and FtMs in
a truthful, whole, and real way, through the eye of a lover, a close friend, a community member,” she says. “This is creatively gratifying to me on an aesthetic level, and I also enjoy the subversive aspects of making
pictures of butches that are undeniably beautiful.” Wallace’s work, Truer, an autobiographical love story, captures the everyday magic of a relationship and was recently exhibited at the Sasha Wolf Gallery in New York as part of the Nymphoto group show. Wallace is
currently co-curating with Cora Lambert and Nathaniel Siegel an exhibit of lesbian
photography from the late 1800s to today with plans for a show in New York and an accompanying book. -CB
