Hannah Norton is a photographer interested in using the photographic image to talk about issues that aren’t always visible at surface level. Central to her work is the communication of her participants' emotions and feelings to the viewer. She endeavours to do this by combining a traditional photographic element with a focus on the portrait, alongside a collaborative approach, working with the participant to create a unique visual language.
Previously, her work has explored communities of people brought together by a shared interest. Getting to know these communities over a period of months and sometimes years, the resulting bodies of work are visual diaries, intimate insights into parallel worlds.
