Hannah Starkey has won the inaugural St James Group Photography Prize, worth £20 000, ahead of 32 leading photographers including Martin Parr and Jem Southam. The theme for the competition was contemporary urban landscape. Starkey’s images (pictured) are ‘uncanny, mysterious and complex’ and ‘an extraordinary English vision of urban space’, say the judges. An exhibition of the shortlisted work called Urban Visions runs until 9 November at Flowers East, 82 Kingsland Road, London E2.
