Hasibe Lesmann (b.1988, DE) is a photographer and artist living in Hamburg, Germany, currently studying her Master of Arts and working for Tagesspiegel Berlin as a picture editor.

Hasibe's work explores photography as an intuitive tool to understand human nature. She tends to find topics woven in everyday life that have political and social impacts on individuals, and uses metaphorical elements to build narratives through the editing process. Her subtle creations are thought-provoking expressions. For her bachelor's work ‘Aura‘ from 2019 she traveled four different eastern and western cities in Europe, considered melting pots, to portray diverse young women* from Istanbul, Budapest, Berlin, and Hamburg. The work displays the self-will of every one of them, and how they manifest as symbolic figures in the streets and landscapes. ‘At the water‘ was shown at Phototriennale Hamburg in 2018 and addresses living conditions of homeless Romani migrants from the EU, constantly stumbling between the fear of eviction from their safe places and the fear of losing their family. 

Currently she is working on her long term project which examines constructs and struggles in society and relationships.
