Helynn is a Colombian-American editorial photographer based in San Francisco. Her work focuses on portraits, travel and interiors. As an immigrant woman with Indigenous roots, her desire is to create quiet and evocative images reflect her personal search for belonging and stillness. She studied life sciences before finding her way to photography, and sees the two disciplines as intricately connected; they both allow for intimate study and exploration of life. Her work often features elements of nature. Straddling two worlds without ever fully belonging to either has afforded Helynn the opportunity of seeing what hides in plain sight, and a thirst for constantly evolving her identity as an artist. She spends her days, when not on site for shoots, with her dog Koa, in the place she feels most at home: the natural world.
