London - Exhibition

Hannah Starkey Solo Show

Maureen Paley

28 Nov 201524 Jan 2016

Maureen Paley presents the seventh solo exhibition by Hannah Starkey at the gallery.

Refining her practice over nearly 20 years within the realm of photographic portraiture and the representation of women, Starkey’s most recent work finds her camera trained on the individual situated within the facades of the city environment. Translating moments of private reflection and social interaction her photographs utilize an almost cinematic language to relay the personal relationships between her subjects and their worlds.

Starkey’s interest in street photography and it’s ability to portray society within an art-historical and documentary context can be traced back to the nineteenth century concept of the flâneur – or more specifically to an understanding of the flâneuse. Female authors writing in the mid 1800s such as Frances Trollope or George Sand aimed to portray women who actively sought economic independence, political ambition, and gender fluidity by using the genre of the panorama.
