My MHB blogger Stephanie Lim and I recently attended an exclusive media dinner organised by Lenovo Malaysia at Suria KLCC with National Geographic Young Explorer Hannah Reyes. Hannah Reyes is a documentary and travel photographer from the Philippines, who is represented by National Geographic Creative, and is a member of Cambodia-based Ruom Collective.

Her love for photography has brought her all over Asia, from photographing the illicit production of an ecstasy precursor in Cambodia’s Cardamom Mountains, surviving the crossfire of shanty demolitions in Manila, creating a moving visual dialogue with a sex worker, to documenting the changing world of Mongolia’s steppe.

She recently completed an expedition funded in part by National Geographic, documenting changing indigenous cultures in Northern Luzon, the Philippines. She hopes to continue documenting hopeful and thought-provoking stories within complex situations created by poverty and inequality.

Her work has been published in print and online in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Time.com, NationalGeographic.com, The Diplomat, The Guardian and Lonely Planet, and has been exhibited for the Chilean embassy in Manila; PNoise Festival in Copenhagen; Asian Cultural Festival in Aalborg, Denmark; China ASEAN Photo Festival in Nanning, China, and most recently with National Geographic in Colorado, USA.

She is based in Phnom Penh however through her partnership with Nat Geo and Lenovo, she has been to India, Thailand and Malaysia to shoot with the latest Lenovo smartphone – the Lenovo Vibe Shot.

Prior to dinner, Hannah gave us a presentation of the photos she shot with the Lenovo Vibe Shot during her travels.

Here are the photos Hannah took in Thailand.

Next up were the photos from India.

 

And lastly were the photos she shot in our very own backyard.

 

If I had not known that the photos were shot with a smartphone I’d have thought they were taken with a DSLR or at least a system camera. Of course, Hannah’s photography skills were also a great contributing factor.

We also took the opportunity to play around with the Lenovo Vibe Shot during dinner and later bringing it to the KLCC lake and shooting the twin towers.
