Hannah Starkey (born 1971) is a British photographer who specializes in staged settings of women in city environments.

Biography[edit]

Born in Belfast, Starkey studied photography and film at Napier University, Edinburgh (1992–1995) and photography at the Royal College of Art, London (1996–1997). She now lives and works in London.[1]

Her more recent images have an almost theatrical character, often depicting women in staged settings, for example with a Coca-Cola in a pub or inside a public lavatory. She describes her work as "explorations of everyday experiences and observations of inner city life from a female perspective."[2][3]
