First major survey of British photographer Hannah Starkey, tracing the development of her work across two decades from 1997 to 2017.

Throughout her career Starkey’s meticulously choreographed photographs have determinedly engaged with how women are represented in contemporary culture, studying women in moments of private reflection, alienation or social interaction that might otherwise go unseen. Meanwhile, the large scale of her images suggests the recording of a monumental event.

The exhibition will feature images from Starkey’s graduation show 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.
