Sogo 'Photographs for a Cause' Founder Wins Place in International Exhibition
Date:10/7/2009

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Not many fledgling photographers can say they've won a spot in every competition they've ever entered, but don't tell that to Sophie Gonin, Founder of Sogo Photography. In her first year as a professional photographer, she's running a two-for-two record. Having won a "Best Abstract" placement in this year's Queen Mary photography competition, Gonin was recently informed that her photo, "Beach Clean Up," will hang alongside those of other winners of the photography contest, "Diverse Perspectives on the Environment, Citizenship and Volunteering," sponsored by ICVolunteers, based in Geneva, Switzerland. The contest, open to photographers from around the globe, promotes action against the ever-increasing threat of climate change through volunteerism and will culminate in a three-week exhibit.

Gonin, who is Swiss by birth but has lived in the United States since the age of 12, launched Sogo Photography in the spring of 2009 with a mission that went beyond just turning a profit: "Aside from being something I've always wanted to do, photography is a way for me to do my part in making the world a better place. Aside from reflecting my love of nature and people in my work, I donate 10% of all Sogo profits to a worthy cause." This year's beneficiary is breast cancer, a disease that greatly affected Gonin last year with the passing of her mother from the illness. Gonin elaborates: "This is a way for me to not only honor my mother, but take action in a very tangible, satisfying way."

Gonin's photo, "Beach Clean Up" will be on display at "La Galerie," 17 rue de la Coulouvreniere, Geneva, Switzerland from October 7-30, 2009. Her portfolio, including her private commissions, can be found online at www.sogophotography.com. She can be contacted for both commissions and press inquiries at sgonin@sogophotography.com.
