Hannah Starkey (born 1971) is a British photographer. She specializes in staged settings of women in city environments. She was born in Belfast. Starkey studied photography and film at Napier University, Edinburgh. Then, she studied photography at the Royal College of Art, London. She now lives and works in London.
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.”
Her work is held in many public collections. Including, the Tate Modern, Victoria and Albert Museum, Irish Museum of Modern Art, and also the Castello di Rivoli.
