Sophie Grogan’s photographic practice concerns the connection that individuals suffering from a mental illness have with nature. Using photography as a form of art therapy, Sophie’s work revisits a sense of place to evoke memory and healing through visualising the landscape as a visceral experience for the body and soul. This aims to create feelings of nostalgia that each viewer can adapt to their own lives as a realisation of growth and healing. This body of work explores romanticism and sublime theory in order to document the emotions that are elicited while being present in a personal and emotional landscape. Sophie’s practice focuses on the importance of nature and its ability to form a narrative that coincides with the potential struggles of day to day life.
