Hannah Norton (b.1992) is a socially engaged documentary photographer who works with individuals and communities that have been under and/or misrepresented in the mainstream media. Through long term engagement and collaborative practice, centred around portraiture, she finds visual language that disrupts stereotypes and informs new ways of thinking.
Norton has won multiple awards, including from the British Journal of Photography and The Royal Photographic Society. She has had her work exhibited across England and Europe: been regularly featured by the British Journal of Photography amongst others: has given talks on Twenty Seconds To Safety and The Community Cook Up, and had her work published by Hoxton Mini Press.
