Sofia Ungar

Profession: Photographer and visual artist.
Hometown: Bariloche
Current City: Buenos Aires


Romantic, brave, dreamer, obsessive, intense. I was born in the forest and grew up in the city. The best thing I do is falling in love, flying in airplanes, and taking photos, sometimes it all comes together. I like being in the water, travel as a exceptional time to think of bigger things, kissing, inventing dances and meals, nature and bodies.

What would be the title of your autobiography?

High Seas

What or who has inspired you recently and why?

Traveling alone to Asia and later moving to Parque Patricios. I lost the fears and prejudices, which ultimately allows us to leave the comfort zone.

Where is your favorite place to travel?

The city that I still don’t know. I enjoy the most the first few hours in a new place.

What is your daily uniform?

Who would you like to party with?

With the 2012 artists program.

Favorite places in Buenos Aires

The San Martin, I particularly like the elevator ride, looking at Corrientes from above, the window that opens, the mirror, and the carpet. To go really fast on Libertador Avenue at night, before in a car, now by bicycle.
