Sophiya Neupane is a Nepali born photographer based in San Francisco Bay Area. From a young age she was drawn to Arts but the Nepali culture & schools were heavily focused on academics. As she gets older Sophiya is learning to let her creative side speak again through photography. Early in life, she was taught the importance of unification, and she is now interested in displaying the human connection through travels and explorations of the human form. In solidarity with the movement for Black Lives, Sophiya has shared photos of her dear friend Dominique Smith @ohhhdomo, along with the models’ favorite quote by James Baldwin.
“You were born where you were born and faced the future that you faced because you were black and for no other reason.” -James Baldwin
