Shwe Wutt Hmon (born 1986) is a Burmese photographer and artist whose works focus on collective histories, familial ties, knots and threads of human relationship and exploring the inner psyche through intimate story telling about people and places close to her heart. She tells personal stories from which she connects and examines broader social aspects; vice versa she works on social documentaries reflecting and drawing from her own position within the issue. Shwe uses photography as her main medium and incorporates archives, videos, texts, poems, paintings and drawings of her own or collaborating with others. 

Shwe is the recipient of respected art and photography awards including the Objectifs Documentary Award 2020 (Open Category) and the Julius Baer Next Generation Art Prize. Her works have been exhibited internationally in art spaces and festivals such as Singapore International Photography Festival, Photo Australia International Festival of Photography and Bangkok Art and Culture Centre.
