Sophie Barbasch’s series The Fault Line is a personal look into the life of her family. and the life in the small coastal town of Brooklin, Maine, Focusing on her younger cousin Adam, “the protagonist”.
The series explores the idea of family, division and how we are connected, whilst still exploring the sense of isolation we have from each other. Sophie uses the title The Fault Line (where the earth splits in an earthquake) as a metaphor for exploring her family. Her goal is to explore the weight we all carry when things aren't perfect, questioning how a family moves forward and support each other whilst things remain imperfect.
Some of the most interesting bodies of work that photographers produce are the ones that have a real sense of intimacy. The work that Sophie has captured couldn’t have not been captured by anyone else other than a family member. In addition to this work, Sophie has a plethora of interesting work, including her reading a selected piece of text to you.
