Some photographers will travel thousands of miles in search of remote communities or little-known destinations. But Sophie Green prefers to look closer to home for inspiration. Over the past three years, she has visited street car races, horse fairs, afro hair salons and Sunday sermons at spiritualist churches to capture Britain’s cultural diversity.
“I have never found it necessary to go abroad or travel far to take pictures. Britain is full of surprises … there are diverse and amazing things happening in every corner of this country. You just have to go out and find them,” she tells CR.
