Lina Selg (1996) is a German documentary photographer based in The Hague, Netherlands. She currently works on assignment for Dutch newspapers, news agencies and organisations, covering daily news and working on longer photo-reportages, both in the Netherlands and internationally. 

Her personal projects focus on those marginalized by society. Her latest work “Faces in the Water” tells the stories of five young adults grappling with depression and suicidal thoughts, yet struggling to enter the Dutch mental health care system.
Her collaborative multi-media project “I miss you, home” tackles the housing crisis in the Netherlands by following a group of international students squatting empty houses for living. 

In 2022, Lina graduated from the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague, with a BA in documentary photography and was consequently selected as a one year trainee by the Dutch newspaper de Volkskrant (2023/24). Since then, she works as a freelancer.
