    Hannah Reyes Morales is a photographer whose work documents tenderness amidst adversity. Her photography, both visceral and intimate, tends to look at how resilience is embodied in daily life.

    Through her photography she has reported on forced marriages in Cambodia, documented human trafficking at sea, and explored the long term effects of colonisation on women’s bodies in the Philippines. She has photographed the toll of Rodrigo Duterte’s war on drugs, and documented the Filipino Diaspora and the effects of it on the island nation where she is from. She spent two years exploring the role of lullabies in creating safe spaces in environments of harm.

    She contributes photography and writing to The New York Times, The Washington Post, and National Geographic Magazine, among others.

    The World Economic Forum named her a cultural leader in their ASEAN forum. In 2019 she participated in the World Press Photo’s Joop Swart Masterclass and received the Tim Hetherington Visionary Award. She received the ICP Infinity Award for Documentary Practice and Visual Journalism in 2020.

    Hannah is currently working on longer term projects, focused on safer space making and caregiving. She is a co-founder of Emerging Islands, an arts residency program in the Philippines focused on enabling Filipino artists to think, create, and relate as an archipelago. She is a National Geographic explorer.
