Hilary Duffy is a New York City-based photographer who draws upon her commitment to social issues and her love of travel and cultures. Hilary first developed a passion for photography while working in Costa Rica. She returned to the United States to study at the International Center of Photography and then became a two-time recipient of the Johnson & Johnson/ICP Fellowship Program. This led to subsequent assignments for international NGOs in the U.S., Latin America, the Caribbean, Asia and Africa.

In 2001, she began working in Cuba with the Maine Photographic Workshops. She returned to create a photographic library and to direct the Havana Youth Photo course.

Her ongoing practice is rooted in visual storytelling through collaboration. Curiosity, honesty, compassion and cultural sensitivity are reflected in her imagery.
