Cover art for Culture with Robert Bound

French photographer Sophie Ebrard isn’t new to Monocle. Last year she headed to the Schlagerboom festival in Dortmund, Germany, with Robert Bound to shoot a photo essay about the beer-fuelled pop extravaganza. This month, Ebrard is the focus of one of our stories as her exhibition ‘It’s Just Love’ heads from Amsterdam to Kyoto. Ebrard tells us about this show and how her work changes between editorial and art.
