World Press Photo Award-Winning Photographer comes to the North West
Press Release:
Danish-born Sobol, who lived and worked in Canada and Greenland before returning to his native Copenhagen where he now lives and works, has developed a world-class reputation since his Sabine project which the British Journal of Photographys Simon Bainbridge described as brilliant.

After moving to Greenland, Sobol fell in love with a local woman and the resulting photographical diary is a love story in black and white with one of the worlds harshest natural environments as its backdrop.

Sobol also spent a year living with a Mayan family in Guatemala. Photographing the indigenous family going about their daily life in the remote mountains, Sobols striking images led to his receiving the World Press Photo award this year.

At the Open Eye Gallery Sobol will be speaking about his work to date and will also be pleased to answer audience questions.

The event on 26 May begins at 7pm; tickets are available from Redeye on 0845 456 0260 or from the Redeye website, www.redeye.org.uk.
