A true free-spirit with a multitude of talents, Sophie Haber exemplifies "wanderlust" and what it means to trust the new experiences travel affords. I had the honor of interviewing her and hearing the beauty and depth of her perspective on her ever-shifting "home."
Travel From Within with Sophie Haber
by Leah "Lou" Zorn
Each of us is multi-dimensional with stunning facets that reveal our depth, interests, personality, and values. For Sophie Haber, flowing with the nomadic lifestyle allows her to be photographer, model, collaborator, artist, leader, lover, and a strong community supporter, in any setting. She reveals how her path led by wanderlust has led her to live and love abundantly.
To travel, move, and love boundlessly requires a connection with oneself and to the world around you. According to Sophie, “our world is so vast with so many creative beings. We all came onto this earth for a reason and have a story to share with one another. Nobody is perfect and when we can let our “ego” go that is when you can be in tune with the harmony within. “
Sophie’s commitment to the stories and diversity of others has led her and partner Eliot, to build One Sky One People—a group of photographers who partner with artisans around the world to support their craft and empower one another. Sophie and Eliot’s like-minded community captures these cultural moments through the lens of their camera and the sharing of stories, creative experience, and global wares. “I believe community and collaboration go hand in hand. If you are immersed in a community you are already collaborating. I believe our future is community--we need to have a better connection with each other and learn from one another. It’s an amazing feeling being able to collaborate and share your visions with another person. This is the ultimate love,” she shares.
Their lust for travel has led them around the world with goals to begin deepening their roots in Australia. “Our journey is now within and manifesting a soulful life on this beautiful land.” Sophie considers herself both “a nester and a nomad.” She explains further, “comfort for me is home. I used to be a homebody and really needed that space to be able to feel this comfort, but as I started to fly and travel, It was just a feeling. Home is within, and that is something I think I will always be seeking.”
Wandering may seem out of reach for some, but anyone can take advantage of this expansiveness in their own unique lives, without leaving their city or town. As Sophie reminds us, “you can find freedom in the most chaotic cities, it all starts in your mind. By just going outside and finding a park, that’s all you need sometimes to fulfill this craving to wander!”
We can also fulfill our connection to community, as Sophie examines, by “gathering more, creating with each other more, and celebrating with one another. It’s ok to ask for help and speak out with each other, that is what we are all here for. We are all pure love and should spread that love to all.”
