Linh Pham is a Vietnamese photographer who explores human condition at personal level. His work has seen him document Kachin’s rebels in remote northern Burma, follow Cuban migrants to central Europe, examine social change on ethnic minorities in Vietnam’s highest mountain, and merge himself in a Guatemalan private Catholic group. He produces stories that attempt to give a voice to people who would not otherwise be heard.
Although working internationally, Linh’s personal works often return to document the changes on everyday life in Vietnam where his root is planted in.
He is currently based in Hanoi and and travels frequently throughout Vietnam.
