Sophie Mona Pagés


To all of you who inspired and keep inspiring me wherever and whenever you are.

Look with my eyes, doors to my mind, and feel my heart.. S.

Lille - Paris November 2011 - February 2012

Roland, my favorite photographer. He took so many pictures of me as a kid, he made me feel like a star. This is how I became familiar with the camera, wishing to capture colours, lines, shapes, smiles, attitudes, life!

Love these moments when something appeals to my eyes and I manage to cacth it as it is, without the model paying attention to me.

London July 2012

Stairs at the LSE library: lines and curves, lines and curves on my mind.

Back in London for a summer course, I play with this city I know so well and make my first autoportraits.

As I have freshly moved to Belleville, Paris becomes my playground. At last!

Another kind of business trips: Saint Jean de Braye or SJDB. A passion for train stations and railways is born.

Even work lunch breaks are full of surprises.

Morocco September 2012

After six years away, here I am, back in Morocco for the wedding of my cousin Mohamed in Kenitra.

An afternoon at the beach before heading to Khenifra in the Middle Atlas. So looking forward to seeing my family and my dear mountains.

Kenitra - Khenifra. Back to my roots.

At Tatie Aicha’s. Enjoying family time in Khenifra, home of the Zayans.

Mountains, shades of blue, hints of red, fast paced life in the avenues and little dark streets of Hong Kong.

Brief but intense, good bye Hong Kong!

Asian airport tribulations on my way to Taipei..

New York City June 2013


My first day in NYC, wandering without a map.. I chose to follow a friend in Harlem to finally head back to Manhattan. I catch sight of Central Park, meet Times Square, observe the organic vegetables trend in Union Square to end the day dancing to the best "local" rap music on a Brooklyn rooftop.

Sunday walk from East Village to Brooklyn Bridge.
