I'm Hannah Yoon (she/her) and I’m a Korean Canadian freelance photographer based in Philadelphia with a focus on portraiture, documentary and photojournalism work.

While studying sociology and psychology in college, I became interested in social justice and racial justice issues. Before becoming a photographer, I lived two years in Seoul, South Korea. Through photography, I want to better understand why we are the way we are and how everything is connected.

I am a proud member of Women Photograph, Diversify Photo and founding board member of the Authority Collective. I am part of these groups as a photographer because I want to see equity in the photo industry.

During the pandemic, I started a bookstagram account (features o books + photography). Beyond photography, I love making Korean food, watching K-dramas and going for bike rides 🚴🏽‍♀️
