Hannah Reyes Morales

Hannah Reyes Morales is a photographer whose work documents tenderness amidst adversity. Her photography, both visceral and intimate, takes a look at how resilience is embodied in daily life. She contributes work to The New York Times, The Washington Post, and National Geographic Magazine, among others. Hannah is currently working on longer term projects, focused on safe-space making and care giving.

Annie Son

Advocacy Award, Youth Awardee

A student at North Hollywood High School and a Los Angeles local, Annie Son captures mundane human experiences through her camera lens, bringing life to a moment in time that would otherwise fade away, unbeknown. The 17-year-old photographer draws inspiration from minute occurrences—like untied shoelaces, linked arms, or a fallen can of paint resting beside a tree—hoping to tell stories and immortalize the history of life forms. Through her photography, she hopes to invoke emotions, be it sorrow, joy, or outrage, and perhaps even incite change.
