Sophie Polyviou (b.1986, Nicosia, Cyprus) is the artist creating works under the alias Foxtrot Lightning. Now based in London, Sophie is originally from the Mediterranean and forever drawn back to the sea. Informed by a sense of wonder her work explores everyday topographies and the relationship between humans and our environment, recording the world we have created, and the one which answers back. Working with medium format film, the camera becomes a tool for meditative and careful observation, a way of obliquely approaching the unknown and the overly familiar. Photographing intuitively, her practice seeks to capture and share the true strangeness and enduring mystery of our world.
