In the basement setting of Berwick Street’s Lights of Soho, portrait photographer Sandra Vijandi captures the persona of Soho Journal readers and key Soho figures. Employing the phosphorescence of neon light, Sandra’s studio series explores how light can be adapted, manipulated and used utilised in order to be expressive of an individual.

Portraits Sandra Vijandi


Caught up in the midst of the heritage and chaos of London, Soho’s relationship with bohemia, occasional controversy, the wild and the experimental has for long been a creative institution. The launch of Soho Journal saw the coming together of a wide variety of individuals reflective of Soho, current and past.

Specialising in fashion and portraiture, London-based photographer Sandra Viljandi brings her distinctive style to capture the eclectic array of personalities gracing the Soho Journal’s first-issue launch party. Sohoites from actors to photographers, and designers through to artists who are defining the heritage of the neighbourhood, through their style, wit and sophistication.

A graduate from the renowned professional photography program at Edinburgh College, Sandra Vijandi is originally from the Basque Country (Spain).
