Photographer & Founder of the Bell Collective
Alina Rudya is a Ukrainian-born photographer, currently living and working in Berlin. She is the founder of the Bell Collective, a collective of female professional photographers, whose aim it is to change the stereotype surrounding female travel and creative choices, which is mostly being pushed on social media. Bell Collective provides a community where professional female photographers share everything from candid portraits to drone images, landscape photos, and adventure shots.
The collective owes its name to Gertrude Bell – a writer who wouldn’t surrender to stereotypes and instead pursued her travels in the early decades of the 20th century.
In the illustrated book Bell Collective the work of 14 bold women is celebrated. The book displays the work of women who are truly carving their own paths across the globe and documenting this journey with pictures.
