If a modern-day Adam and Eve explored the Garden of Eden holding hands, armed with a camera and young curiosity, the results would look like Dina Lün’s photographs. Cheeky, vibrant and exceedingly well-lit, Lün’s portraits of plants and tropical vegetation are a refreshing hit of punch-drunk bliss and brash self-awareness. The talented but reluctant photographer first picked up a camera in high school. Originally from Russia, she now travels Europe and Asia snapping pics of the local flora and fauna.
Having been featured in publications such as Paper Journal and Trip Magazine, Lün focuses on using photography as a means of understanding our surroundings in a fast-paced world. By zooming in on everyday greenery, fruits and vegetables, Lün invites the viewer to pause and lean in, concentrating on these overlooked items as a reflection of us water-based beings. Currently curating for Organica Magazine and acting as photo editor for The Question, Lün’s photos will inspire you to stop and smell the roses.
