Sofie is living with her family, astonishing antic dealers, at a secluded 16th Century farm and estate in the small village Eilenstedt, Germany. The portraits focus on Sofie's everyday life here, the highs and the lows of a teenager. First love, first heartache. Through that awkward yet beautiful and thrilling phase, many of us go through, a sort of transition from girl to woman.
Sofie was born at home on Christmas night 1998. Three weeks later during a routine doctor’s appointment her mother Barbara found out that her child, Sofie, has Down Syndrome.
