Hana Mendel lives and works in Manhattan, NYC. In 2018, she graduated summa cum laude from the Columbus College of Art and Design with a bachelor of fine arts degree. In summer 2022, she attended the Columbia Publishing Course at the Graduate School of Journalism. 

Interested in stories and the visuals that accompany them, Mendel's images range from narrative journalism to conceptual photo-illustration. Her personal work is influenced by Jewish folklore and magical realism; she depicts this through a distinctive blend of traditional and digital media. 

​Mendel has been featured in several publications, including The New Yorker, New York Magazine, GQ, Wired, VICE, Fast Company, and the Wall Street Journal.
