BIO     Sofia Aldinio is an Argentine-American...


Sofia Aldinio is an Argentine-American documentary photographer and multimedia storyteller. She is currently based between Portland, Maine. Her work is guided by themes such as immigration, climate change, and preserving natural and cultural heritage. 

A large part of Sofia's documentary work focuses on amplifying stories of immigrants and refugees arriving in the Northeast of the United States. She was awarded a grant through the Maine Art Commission to complete a project about refugees and the most precious object they carried with them. The project is still traveling as an exhibition throughout the state of Maine educating communities about their stories through their lens. For this project, she engaged with local businesses, the community, the city of Portland and non-profits. As an extension to this project and in tandem with the city of Portland, Sofia is currently developing a photography program to help immigrants discover what it means to belong in a foreign place. 

Sofia is currently working on a project about how climate change is threatening traditions and ways of life in small communities living in Baja California that depend directly on natural resources to survive. The project will become an archival document for the communities she is documenting.

Sofia is also an advocate for the outdoors and has lived the past three years in a van with her family, traveling and experiencing North America at large. During this time she produced and hosted a podcast with her husband, a number of co-branded photo and video projects and was a speaker at a number of events around the country - all to inspire families to get outside.

Her work has been published and featured in NPR, The Washington Post, Portland Press Herald, LaNacion (Argentina), Atmos, Social Documentary Network, Maine Today, Outside Magazine Online, Backcountry Magazine, Bon Appetit New Zealand, Empower Immigrant Woman, Backcountry Magazine among others. She has worked for non-profits such as Learning Works, Maine Wabanaki REACH, the City of Portland, Maine and Maine Immigrants’ Rights, amongst others. Her commercial clients include Patagonia, Patagonia Provisions, Cole Hann, Sperry, Opolis Optics, Thule, Winterstick, amongst others. See Commercial Portfolio.

She is a proud member of Women Photograph, Diversify Photo.
