Hannah Mrakovcic - Scholars - The Gordon Parks Foundation

Hannah Mrakovcic is an artist who was born and raised in Queens. She has always been fascinated by photography and quickly became obsessed with documenting the world at a young age. She studied biology and psychology to understand the physical world and herself more, yet she felt unsatisfied. After finding that the sciences did not offer an expressive outlet in response to this understanding, Hannah turned her passion to photography. Not interested in completely giving up her scientific pursuits, Hannah aims to embrace both science and photography as channels to better understand the world. Hannah does not want to limit herself to a specific kind of photography though she tends to experiment with documentary and nature photography, capturing a balance between the ethereal and the mundane.
