Airbnb works with local photographers to capture the spirit of neighborhoods all around the world. The photography on this page includes work by:
Youngna Park is a photographer and multimedia producer based in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. In 2011, she co-produced the feature-length dance music video, "Girl Walk // All Day", with her husband (and fellow Airbnb photographer), Jacob Krupnick. Her photography is intertwined with the narratives of daily life, and highly influenced by the relationship between nature and urban spaces.
