Early life and education
She graduated with a B.A. in Journalism and Politics at New York University.
At the age of 23, Soren was the face of MTV's Choose or Lose campaign, which focused on encouraging young adults to vote.
After a career in television news, Soren spent a year studying art and photography at Stanford University. Over the past ten years, her projects have been published in The New York Times Magazine, Canteen, Vanity Fair, McSweeney’s, Sports Illustrated and New York, among others. Public collections include the Los Angeles Country Museum of Art, Oakland Museum of Art, in California, the New Orleans Museum of Art, Pier 24 Photography, Transformer Station in Ohio as well as the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in Louisiana.
In 2012, her show, “Running” appeared at the Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art. A three-year-long project, shot in 15 states, including Mexico and Canada, “Running” featured dramatically lit, isolated individuals running in everyday settings.
In 2015, Soren’s show, "Fantasy Life," debuted at Kopeikin Gallery in Los Angeles and traveled to the Bay Area. The exhibition showcased images of 21 baseball players selected for the Oakland A’s 2002 draft class, whom Soren followed for thirteen years, until they were out of baseball.
Later in 2015, Soren revealed “Panic Beach”, a photographic series of rugged, powerful waves along coastlines all over the world.
Her most recent series, “Surface Tension” is about the struggle to adapt to technological domination. All of the images are shot on an 8” x 10” view camera on film.
She is represented by Kopeikin Gallery in Los Angeles, CA.
Soren married author Michael Lewis in 1997; they have three children: Quinn, Dixie, and Walker.
