MAGDALENA SOLÉ is an award-winning social documentary photographer. She is known for her sensitive expressions of culture through distinctive color artistry. Magdalena Solé’s work touches on the themes of displacement and human suffering, societies living on the margins and places forgotten or shunned by the mainstream. Her visual narratives are often inspired by poetry.

Magdalena Solé was born in Spain, raised in Switzerland, and lived in New York City for more than thirty years before moving to Vermont's deep countryside. Visual language has been her life's work. She earned her MFA in film from Columbia University, New York, and she has worked in photography, film, and graphic design. She was part of the team that won the 2009 Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature for the film Man on Wire.

Solé teaches photo workshops and lectures internationally on photography. Currently she is working on her second book— Cuba: Hasta Siempre, which will be available in the fall of 2019. Her previous book New Delta Rising, an in-depth look at the Mississippi Delta, won numerous awards and is available at all major bookstores. 

Her work spans the globe and most recently she has been working in Europe documenting the life of Gypsies and Travellers.  https://www.solepictures.com/
