About the Artist
Princess Sophie von Hanau, born into an Austrian/German family, is a citizen of the world, fluent in four languages. She went to school in Spain and visited family in the U.S. several times a year. Whilst in pursuit of her BA in Psychology, she attended the University of Miami, Webster University Vienna, C.I.S in Madrid, and graduated at London's Regent college in 2004.
Believing that psychology is the window into the world and into human behaviour, she began to merge this knowledge with her passion for photography, capturing the very moment that she wished to analyse.
Sophie then went on to another degree and studied photography at the School of Black and White Photography in London. Since a young age, Sophie has had the opportunity to travel the world, her passion taking her to some of the most remote places around the globe. Quickly but to no surprise, she held her first photography exhibition at London's renowned fashion store Fendi on Sloane Street in 2006.
Sophie very much discovered her passion for photography through her psychology. In one of her Abnormal Psychology classes, she was required to give a presentation, but having a serious fear of public speaking, she decided to document her project on mental illness with images.
“With a camera I found a voice!” she says. She spent three months strongly interacting with homeless people in Miami and New York, of which many suffer serious mental illnesses.
The situations she found herself in were often far from safe.
The response to her photography was astounding, and her project was exhibited at the University of Miami Arts Centre.
It was not long before she broke away from traditional photography and began creating the oversized, modern, and sometimes slightly abstract work she does today.
Though her passion lies in documentary/artistic photography, she spent three years working in fashion photography. Assisting Nick Haddow on a full time basis, with all of his campaigns.
“I go where my heart sends me, and I help where I can.” She donates a generous amount of the proceeds from her sales to these projects. Knowing that this will help better the lives of those children and their families which she has worked with, come to love and wants to help.
