is a British photographer which photographs reconstruct scenes from everyday life with the concentrated stylisation of film.
Born in Belfast, Starkey studied photography and film at Napier University and photography at the Royal College of Art. She now lives and works in LondonStarkey’s images picture women engaged in regular routines such as loitering in the street, sitting in cafes, or passively shopping. Starkey captures these generic ‘in between’ moments of daily life with a sense of relational detachment. Her still images operate as discomforting ‘pauses’; where the banality of existence is freeze-framed in crisis point, creating reflective instances of inner contemplation, isolation, and conflicting emotion.
