Sophie Park is an award winning visual journalist based in Boston, MA. Since graduating from Boston University in 2020 with a B.A. in international relations, she has started working as a teaching assistant for an introductory photography course at Harvard Extension School. She also moonlights as a COVID-19 contact tracer.

As a photographer and scholar, her perspectives are shaped by her semi-nomadic upbringing in Missouri, New Jersey, and Cambodia. While behind the camera, her goal is simple: to capture otherwise fleeting moments, connect people, and debunk stereotypes through visual mediums.

You can find her work in the Boston Globe, Associated Press, Daily Free Press and Harvard Gazette. Most recently, her photo essay documenting her experience with COVID-19 won Best In Show in the Boston Press Photographers Association’s 2019 College Contest.

Sophie loves rock climbing, backcountry camping, and skiing. She is a member of the National Press Photographers Association, Asian American Journalists Association, and Visura Media, and is available for assignment anywhere.
