Linda Zhengová is a Czech photographer and writer who currently lives and studies in the Netherlands. She has a background in International Studies and finished her BA at Leiden University in 2015. She is now also doing her MA in Media Studies at Leiden University with a focus on Film and Photographic Studies together with a Photography BA at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague.

She shoots pictures for about eight years and her fields are both documentary and fiction photography. To make a clear specification of her photographic work is difficult as it highly depends upon how we understand reality and where is the border when we start to define artificial constructions. She depicts personal topics in connection to themes of gender, memory, and decay. She intends to photograph in order to express feelings or questions that puzzle her mind with the hope that others will feel a certain relation to such expressions as well.

In her writings, she delves into topics of gender, post-humanism, and photographic theories in order to discuss works of others and themes that interest her.

In terms of her professional career, her work was published in numerous art magazines and newspapers, for instance in Prague Post, Pilsner Journal, Vogue Italia, LINDA, Mezzanine Magazine etc. Several personal projects have been also exhibited in cities such as Prague (CZ), Pilsen (CZ), Novi Sad (SRB), Brussels (BE) and The Hague (NL).
