About Matt Linden
Hi, I’m Matt.
I’m a landscape, travel, and lifestyle photographer based between London and Helsinki, but I’m also a traveller and a dreamer – so I can often be found exploring my favourite place on earth – the Himalayas.
I grew up in inner-city London: a childhood of crowded, grey apartment blocks and bright lights, interspersed with summer trips to my mother’s homeland, Finland, a land of never-ending sunlight, forests, lakes and freedom. This connection and disconnection to Finland instilled within me a yearning to understand the wider world’s languages, cultures, and people.
I undertook a BA in Chinese Studies at SOAS and studied Tibetan language at Tibet University in Lhasa. I’ve completed an MA in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography from the London College of Communication, one of the UK’s most prestigious arts universities, in 2013.
My photographic work is largely story and person-based. I produced seven video-stories on Nepal’s third gender population, which were featured on the BBC. Over my two years in Lhasa, I worked on documenting Tibetan youth, taking portraits and collecting stories of more than 250 individuals. I have experience in producing in-depth and compelling multimedia projects not just for my own documentary projects, but also for commercial clients like Danone and Shell. Ultimately, I have a passion for creating powerful, moving images that draw the essence of the person or place photographed.
你好，我是芬兰籍英国摄影师马特·林登。毕业于伦敦艺术大学中文系，获伦敦传媒学院纪实摄影硕士学位。现居伦敦和赫尔辛基。作为旅行家和梦想家，我热爱登山、星辰和日落，常年出没于挚爱之地 —— 喜马拉雅，会说英语、中文和⻄藏语。我曾多次参与包括美国、日本、印度在内的全球性摄影项目，作品曾多次被BBC、CNN、TIME OUT 等国内外杂志报道。有别于传统旅行风景摄影，我更注重花费大量时间来了解某个特定地区的人文历史，用镜头记录只属于我的某段生活经历，探讨人类生命中的双重性与转瞬即逝的时光。
