Throughout her career Starkey’s meticulously choreographed photographs have determinedly engaged with how women are represented in contemporary culture, an issue which is now, finally centre stage.
Starkey reveals women in moments of private reflection, alienation or social interaction that might otherwise go unseen: a woman fleetingly fascinated by another woman’s reflection, or the attentive gaze of a mother carrying her child. Meanwhile, the large scale of her images suggest the recording of a monumental event. On display will be images from Starkey’s graduation show in 1997 that immediately brought her widespread acclaim through to her most recent photographs of the Women’s March in London in 2017 and as yet unseen commissions.
