Lanna Apisukh is a portrait and documentary photographer based in New York City. With a background in skateboarding and an extensive athletic career as a former elite gymnast, she is drawn to photographing dynamic individuals walking their own path. Her work explores people and their relationship to place, identity and gender 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 photography education at the Fashion Institute of Technology. Her subjects span from TV personalities, skateboarders and CEOs to artists, immigrants, everyday people and their surroundings.
Lanna’s editorial and personal work has been featured in Bust Magazine, Aint–Bad, The Photographic Journal, Lomography Magazine and more. In addition to her freelance photography work, she helps BKC photo school with providing creative education to everyday New Yorkers and is a founding member of Seeing Collective, an artist group hosting talks, photo exhibitions and critiques to foster community and an inclusive, supportive network within the photo industry.
Lanna is available for assignments and commissions and is excited to tell your story.
