Sofia Aldinio

Sofia Aldinio is an Argentine-American documentary photographer and multimedia storyteller. She is currently based between Portland, Maine, and Baja California, Mexico. Her work uses collaborative practices to tell stories about home, immigration, climate change, and preserving natural and cultural heritage through an interdisciplinary process that uses photography, archival materials, illustrations, motion, audio, and written narratives.

Much of Aldinio’s documentary work amplifies stories of immigrants and refugees arriving in the American Northeast. She was awarded two grants through the Maine Arts Commission to develop community-based projects where immigrants explore belonging in a foreign place.

In 2022, she received the Kindling Fund Grant to develop an interdisciplinary storytelling workshop and exhibition within the immigrant community in Portland, Maine.
