Sonya is an academic, artist and writer. She studied for an MA in Fine Art (Media) at The Slade School of Fine Art and currently holds the post of Senior Lecturer BA (Hons) Photography at Sheffield Hallam University. Sonya has contributed to exhibitions, conferences, and synposium in the UK and Scandinavia.
Sonya's photography practice involves making images of landscapes reflected on the surface of black Perspex, specifically the landscape architecture of English gardens and parks. This work, reminiscent of visual devices such as the Claude glass, form part of a wider research question about representation and that which is elided in the image.
