Born in Paris, Sophie Caby is a Los Angeles-based photographer. She went to the Art Faculty Paris 8 specializing in photography and then studied architecture at the Beaux-Arts de Paris Val-de-Seine. Her work focuses on people and landscape, and her recent project Terminus Los Angeles can be seen here.
Stateside Project is an ongoing portrait series between up-and-coming actors, models, artists, musicians, and photographers. Wearing a Stateside T-shirt, each is interviewed and photographed in their environment, be it at home, studio or out in the world.
Sarita Jaccard is a touche-a-tout woman! In another era, she would have inspired Baudelaire and posed for Klimt. A singular beauty with an obscure gaze. With a strong mind of her own, Sarita works with digital and concrete mediums, juggling both quite perfectly. You can see her photography at www.saritajaccard.com. On a bright Sunday afternoon, we wandered around the rose garden, while the sun highlighted the darkest reds of her hair, an idyllic tableau. I wasn’t quite sure which year we were in or whether I was awake or not.
What do you most like about your line of work?
I work in various fields: Landscape design, graphic/web design, photography, vintage (@heel.of.achilles), and occasionally modeling. Currently, I’m mainly working with a landscape designer, and as someone who feels a strong connection with the natural world, it has been fulfilling to be able to learn more about it and the beauty that it manifests in my day to day.
What inspires you?
I’m inspired by movies, animals, plants, my Argentinean roots, places and things that have a story behind them, perseverance through adversity, cultures outside of my own, and the people close to me.
How would you describe your style?
It varies from being solely based on comfort, to mismatching different items, to being more classic.
Do you recall your first favorite T-shirt?
A t-shirt from the gift shop at the Griffith Observatory that had a graphic of a galaxy on it with an arrow pointing to a tiny dot with the words “you are here”.
What’s next for you?
To pursue current interests until they’re no longer current.
