Lanna Apisukh is an American photographer based in New York City working in portrait and documentary photography. With a background in skateboarding and an extensive athletic career as a former Division I elite gymnast, she is drawn to active and unique individuals walking their own path. Her work explores identity, individuality and place through bold and honest stories she strives to create in her images.

Lanna is a Bachelor of Arts graduate of the University of Washington and has expanded on her photo education at the Fashion Institute of Technology. Her subjects span from TV personalities, athletes and CEOs to artists, designers, everyday people and their surroundings. 

Lanna’s editorial work has been featured in Bust Magazine, The Photographic Journal, and Lomography Magazine. She currently works with BKC photo school to provide creative education to everyday New Yorkers and is a founding member of Seeing Collective, an inclusive space hosting workshops, monthly talks and critiques to foster community and a supportive network within the photo industry. 

Lanna is available for assignments and commissions and is excited to tell your story.
