Slow Looking: Hannah Reyes Morales

View three images by Hannah Reyes Morales, listen to the audio descriptions and/or download the audio description transcripts below. These audio descriptions were produced by Zoe Partington for a live Slow Looking event.


Hannah Reyes Morales is a Filipina photographer and National Geographic Explorer whose work documents tenderness amidst adversity. Her photography, both visceral and intimate, takes a look at how resilience is embodied in daily life. Based in Manila, Reyes Morales’ work explores the universal themes of diaspora, survival, and the bonds that tie us together.

Zoe Partington, an artist and a Creative Consultant and Advisor for the cultural sector, has produced audio descriptions for three photographs by Hannah Reyes Morales.

Slow Looking sessions are supported by the Vision Foundation.
