Hannah Starkey, In the company of Mothers
“Motherhood; talk about a passion project…” says Hannah Starkey, London based photographer and mother of two girls, ages 11 and 12. Her work was first featured on The Daily Beast in a survey of 15 female art photographers, on the occasion of International Women’s Day. Throughout her career, Starkey has explored the representation, identity, and interaction of the contemporary woman—an ever-evolving process of reflection since she began working in her twenties.
In the company of Mothers is her newest series of work, currently on view at Tanya Bonakdar Gallery in New York, through May 25. In an interview with Lisa Larson-Walker, photo editor for The Daily Beast, Starkey describes the progression of her work, the visceral and complex process of photographing mothers, and the significance of making art for the empowerment of women; see more works from In the company of Mothers here.
