My name is Sofi Lundin and I´m a Swedish freelance journalist and photographer with a passion for storytelling. I am based between Norway and Uganda where I am working for international media, non-governmental organisations and on personal projects. In 2017, I was named Rising Star in Photography, by Adobe.
I have more than ten years’ experience working in the development and humanitarian sector where I am producing engaging visual and written content for various platforms. I have experience working in conflict and post conflict environments and over the years my work has appeared in several newspapers/magazines, such as The Guardian, Aftenposten Innsikt, New Internationalist and Dagens Næringsliv (DN).
My photographic and journalistic work is characterised by a belief that humanity should always be reflected when reporting, be it stories on refugees in South Sudan or the LGBTI community in Uganda.
My education in social anthropology as well as many years of work experience in the humanitarian and development sector has laid the base for the work I do today. Apart from covering stories for media, I develop high-impact visual and written content for businesses, NGO´s and institutions. Some of my clients are: Norad (Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation), Save the Children, Oxfam, Sida, The Norwegian Society for Sea Rescue (Redningsselskapet – RS) and Danida (Denmarks Development Cooperation)
I am a member of The Norwegian Union of Journalists and Foreign Correspondents Association of Uganda (FCAU).
