Lina Chu is a Ukrainian-Vietnamese travel, adventure and documentary photographer. She started her photography journey with a simple phone camera exploring Kyiv hidden streets back in 2016. Two years later, you could find her with a camera in her hands, shooting hundreds of photos everyday during the six months that she spent traveling around the United States, living out of a self-built teardrop camper. Since that moment, she carries her camera with her wherever she hitchhikes, couchsurfs, backpacks solo or with friends, jumps with joy when seeing a sunrise or a cloud inversion (or both), or freezes in awe when spotting wildlife.
Photography comes as an organic continuation of her inquisitiveness for the world around her. It is also her tool for promoting a healthy interaction between humans and nature, the culture of outdoor adventures, as well as inspiring people to explore their cultural and natural heritage.
