March 9th 2015
Doors open 6pm. Lecture Starts 6.30
The Photography Department at Cambridge School of Art, Anglia Ruskin University is pleased to announce a rare public lecture by the internationally acclaimed photographer Hannah Starkey.
One of the most important currently active female photographers engaged with female representation, Hannah Starkey’s work has won many awards and is held by in many collections throughout the world, including the Tate Gallery and the V&A.
An important contemporary photographer with a distinct voice, her carefully staged and composed images evoke the cinematic, recalling the cool compositions of Jeff Wall or the melancholy of an Edward Hopper painting. Though seemingly mundane, her pictures of women engaged in everyday life suggest intimate moments within a wider sense of narrative beyond the frame, collectively imbuing a sense of disquiet.
