Born in London and grew up in Melbourne, Australia, Sophie Kahn trained as a photographer and later expanded her study to animation, 3d imaging and digital sculpture. Sophie’s work engages the role of the image in the expanded field of post-photographic imaging. Her creative use of the novel technology of 3d scanning and 3d printing to capture the living body produces a fragility that exists between that of the living in constant flux and the mortuary stillness.
Sophie has also been employed by the Royal Children’s Hospital, where she conducted research into 3d medical imaging. She currently resides and works in New York City as a teaching artist.
