Sofia Aldinio is an Argentine-American documentary photographer and multimedia storyteller. She is currently based between Portland, Maine and Baja California, Mexico. Her work uses collaborative practices to tell stories about home, immigration, climate change, and preserving natural and cultural heritage through an interdisciplinary process that uses photography, archival materials, illustrations, motion, audio and written narratives.

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 bringing kids outside. She has lived the past three years in a van with her family, traveling and exploring nature. During this time she produced and hosted a podcast with her husband to inspire families to get outside.

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 work has been published and featured in the Portland Press Herald, Social Documentary Network, Outside Magazine,  Backcountry Magazine, Age of Humanity Magazine, Bon Appetit NZ among others. Her commercial clients include Patagonia, Patagonia Provisions, Cole Hann, Sperry, Winterstick, amongst others.

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