My name is Sofi Lundin. I am a Swedish freelance photographer and journalist based in Uganda, working for international media, non-governmental organisations and on personal projects. In 2017, I was named Rising Star in Photography, by Adobe.
My photographic and journalistic work is characterized by a belief that humanity should always be reflected when reporting, be it stories on refugees in South Sudan or the LGBT community in Uganda.
I have worked for various international newspapers and magazines, among them: The Guardian, Aftenposten, New Internationalist, Dagens Næringsliv (DN), Jyllandsposten, Omvärlden (Sida´s magazine), VG, The Documentary Magazine Plot, Perspective and Bistandsaktuelt (Norad´s magazine).
My education in social anthropology as well as many years of work experience with various humanitarian, non-governmental organisations (NGO´s), has laid the base for the work I do today. Norwegian Refugee Council, The Rainforest Foundation, Save the Children, Norwegian Church Aid and The Norwegian Society for Sea Rescue (Redningsselskapet – RS), are a few of my clients.
I am a member of The Norwegian Union of Journalists and Reporters Without Borders.
