My name is Sofi Lundin and I´m a Swedish freelance journalist and photographer with a passion for storytelling. I am based in Uganda where I have been covering the East African region for the past six years. I am working for international media, non-governmental organisations and on personal projects. In 2017, I was named Rising Star in Photography, by Adobe and my work has been rewarded internationally on several platforms.
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 International newspapers and magazines.
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, non-governmental organisations and institutions. Some of my clients are: Norad (Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation), SIDA (Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency) Save the Children, GIZ, Oxfam, The Norwegian Society for Sea Rescue (Redningsselskapet – RS) and Danida (Denmarks Development Cooperation)
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 GBV in Uganda. I am committed to document stories from communities that are usually invisible in media, and to enhance voices of people that are rarely heard.
I am a member of The International Press Association of Uganda (IPAU) and Reporters without Borders.
