Sophie van der Perre

In her latest photographic series, Sophie van der Perre embarks on a journey through the natural landscapes of Marseille, exploring themes of nature and self-reflection. Her project delves into the symbolism of the four classical elements — earth, water, air, and fire —capturing their unique essences.


Van der Perre’s work invites viewers to engage with the natural world, urging them to reflect on their personal connections to these fundamental elements. Each photograph is composed to highlight the inherent beauty and significance of these natural forces. By focusing on faces in stones and water, she brings a sense of personality and life to these inanimate objects, encouraging viewers to see the world around them in a new light.


4 elements Marseilles is an invitation to pause and meditate on our place within the natural world. By contemplating these elements, we are reminded of our intrinsic connection to the earth, the air, the water, and the fire that sustain us. Through her art, Sophie van der Perre inspires us to rediscover and cherish the timeless bond we share with nature.
