Benina Hu (°1997, BE) is visual artist and photographer based in Leuven. Currently she is pursuing a masters degree in photography at KASK School of Arts Ghent.

Born and raised in Belgium to Chinese parents, Benina has always been drawn to both the eastern and western culture. In her documentary work she’s known to incorporate text in a rather hands-on manner and by cutting, pasting and writing on her own photographs.
Besides her interests in environmentalism and social issues, other themes she touches upon are Chinese culture, identity and family. Since every project asks for a different approach, Benina likes to challenge herself by using multiple mediums such as photography, video and text.
