Irish artist Hannah Starkey’s photographic show at Tanya Bonakdar Gallery in Chelsea could easily be missed if you didn’t know to head upstairs at the gallery.
The beautiful, large-scale photographs were all taken in London, where Starkey lives and works. The images show women and children against super urban backgrounds, graffiti, street murals and inner city parks. Working with actresses as well as people she just meets on location, strangely the photographs don’t look like London, but rather could be an urban city in the world.Hannah Starkey: In the company of Mothers.
