 About Her 

Charissa Soriano.jpg
Charissa is a Filipina documentary photographer and artist. Her work gravitates towards stories around immigration and identity as she has navigated two worlds since moving to Seattle from Manila more than five years ago. As her process evolves, she’s realizing her inclination towards the quiet moments between her and the scenes and settings she photographs to perhaps reveal the unseen. Moreover, she’s intentional about empowering underrepresented communities by collaborating with them from a place of care.

Charissa has been published by The Seattle Times and The Seattle Globalist (defunct) and worked with organizations including IOM - UN Migration and Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture. 
She looks forward to working with community members, editors, and artists on creative projects.
