HANNAH REYES MORALES
Hannah Reyes Morales is a Filipina photojournalist whose work focuses on individuals mired in complex situations created by inequality, poverty, and impunity. This includes photographing human trafficking at sea for the New York Times, reporting on war crimes against Cambodians for Al Jazeera America, and documenting changing indigenous cultures in the Philippines for a grant from National Geographic.
