Linh Pham


Linh Pham is a Vietnamese photographer who was born, raised and now based in Hanoi, Vietnam. He is a frequent contributor to Getty Images, The New York Times, and National Geographic, amongst others, and his work has been published across platforms worldwide.

In his practice, Pham explores the human condition in the Lower Mekong region which has been affected by social transformation, rapid economic growth and domestic conflicts, all with a present-day touch, reflecting his study in modern art and design. 

Although working internationally, Pham’s personal works often return to document the avant-garde aspects of the issues that link to Vietnam’s past. Since 2012, Pham has been reporting on stories from Vietnam including the Mekong giant catfish extinction, underground Soviet-era motorcycle racing, intercontinental human trafficking, reburial rituals and the South China Sea dispute.

In 2016, Pham co-founded Matca, a leading platform for archiving as well as sharing contemporary Vietnamese photographic works.
