Shwe Wutt Hmon (born 1986) is a freelance photographer based in Yangon, Myanmar, and also works as an independent researcher for UN agencies and international organizations.

Shwe is one of the founding members of a Myanmar based women photographer collective, Thuma Collective. Shwe has published two collective photo books, “Us & Beyond”, self-published by Thuma Collective and “Bridging the Naf”, funded by the Norwegian People’s Aid.

Shwe’s works focus on collective identity, human relationships, exploring mental health and telling long-term stories of places and people that close to her heart. She tells personal stories from which she connects and examines larger social issues; vice versa she works on social stories reflecting and drawing from her position within the issue.

Shwe was a participant in 13th Angkor Photo’s professional workshop in 2017. She was a mentee in Invisible Photographer Asia’s Mentorship Program in 2018, and was selected for South Asia Incubator 1 at Photo Kathmandu 2018. She completed her first artist residency at Villa Sträuli in Winterthur, Switzerland, in early 2020, supported by Pro Helvetia Swiss Arts Council, New Delhi. Shwe is the recipient of Objectifs Documentary Award 2020 (Open Category) from the Objectifs Center of Photography and Film and World Press Photo’s 2020 Joop Swart Masterclass participant.
