Cinematic, richly saturated images reveal UK-based Hannah Starkey’s deeply personal vision. She chooses seemingly simple scenes—often of a single woman, alone, in a public place, preoccupied with an ordinary task. But she situates the subject in an environment of glass, windows or mirrors that partially obscure the subject while the reflections add dimension and mood to the portrait. Though the photographs at first seem tranquil and contemplative, a second look suggests a deeper, more complex narrative.
