I have brought a number of Italian magazines with me to Maputo.
I think it's always good to have something to read in Italian considered that all day long I have to speak English (and sometimes a very poor Portoguese).
One of these magazines had dedicated an article to an Irish photographer whose name is Hannah Starkey.
Hannah was born in Belfast in 1971 and is a very talented photgrapher.
In her pictures she represents issues of class, race, gender, and identity. Her images convey a sense of personal and emotional disconnection. She mainly portrays women as you can see below.
Her pictures are exhibited at Saatchi Gallery in London.
