Mirror - Untitled, September 2015

Starkey, Hannah
Hannah Starkey is a photographer who has worked in both fine art and commercial photography. During the late 1990s she began to create large-scale works of a staged cinematic character, often featuring isolated women in anonymous interiors or urban environments. Recently, Starkey has described her work as ‘explorations of everyday experiences and observations of inner city life from a female perspective’, and has traced her interest in street photography to the 19th-century concept of the flâneur, or flâneuse. In Mirror - Untitled, September 2015, (2015) Starkey captures herself in the act of taking a photograph. Her reflection, as well as those of two young women and the anonymous street they stand in, is presented to the viewer fractured and distorted in the mirror’s multiple planes.
