Born with an attraction for the unknown and adventure, Linka A Odom passed many days while growing up creekwalking in the suburbs of Dallas, Texas. After graduating from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts in 1997, she satisfied this wanderlust by traveling, exploring, and documenting diverse cultures. Odom has adventured & photographed in more than 30 countries over the last 15 years. Linka began working with multi media materials in 2005 and has since developed a unique way to showcase her work using photographic light boxes. Her installations have traveled to music and art festivals all over the world. In August of 2010, Odom left the U.S. to pursue an advanced degree, graduating in December 2012 from the University of the Arts in London with a Master’s in Photojournalism & Documentary Photography. In 2012, Linka was awarded a Getty Images Creative Grant for her work with photo based installation art. Odom thrives in off the beaten path and unique settings as a freelance photographer and is inspired by ancient civilizations and by people that live on the edge. She is incredibly interested in developing new ways of displaying imagery. Linka is now headquartered in Berlin, Germany.
