Sin­ce the mid-1990s, the Nort­hern Irish pho­to­gra­pher Han­nah Star­key has dedi­ca­ted her work to women and the ways in which pho­to­gra­phy has shaped ide­as about what it means to be fema­le. Known for her cine­ma­tic mise-en-sce­nes, Star­key con­structs por­traits of women of dif­fe­rent gene­ra­ti­ons, often situa­ted in ever­y­day urban con­texts. Prof­fe­ring the view of the flâ­neu­se – a fema­le coun­ter­point to the artis­tic tra­di­ti­on of the male flâ­neur – Starkey’s images reveal 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.

Like modern-day gen­re pain­tings, Starkey’s images are dri­ven by fami­li­ar nar­ra­ti­ves, but ones that play on the visu­al lan­guages of diver­se pho­to­gra­phic gen­res – inclu­ding dia­ris­tic, street, docu­men­ta­ry, cine­ma­tic, fine art, and fashion – to subt­ly pro­be the ways that women are rep­re­sen­ted in popu­lar cul­tu­re. As Star­key has said, “I real­ly think that visu­al cul­tu­re is the last batt­le­ground for women’s equa­li­ty and free­dom”. From her ear­ly sta­ged pho­to­graphs made in Bel­fast to her recent docu­men­ta­ti­on of the 2017 Women’s March in Lon­don, this cata­lo­gue rai­son­né charts two deca­des of Starkey’s influ­en­ti­al image-making, and ser­ves as a signi­fi­cant touchstone for dis­cus­sions on the fema­le gaze. The book inclu­des a bio­gra­phi­cal essay by the cura­tor and wri­ter Char­lot­te Cot­ton and a can­did con­ver­sa­ti­on bet­ween the artist and the edi­tor and wri­ter Liz Jobey.
