Going to the Women’s March was a watershed moment for me. I was very emotional and excited. It was a high! The atmosphere and the fact that women were standing up and men were standing up with them. You realised that you’re not on your own and I felt this sort of solidarity and freedom and total excitement with photography. Images were coming at me in a rate that I couldn’t possibly capture or process fast enough. This was a place full of women, and they all wanted to be photographed. They wanted to be seen. They’d made these beautiful signs. They were angry. There was a collective sense of asking “why are all these women feeling like this?” - Hannah Starkey
‘Inspire Sisterhood’, Women’s March, London 2017, 2017 was taken by British artist Hannah Starkey at the 2017 Women’s March in London. Around this time, Starkey’s work took a decisive turn towards addressing political movements and representations of women’s activism. Inspired by protest marches taking place around the world, the artist began to photograph women as they took to the streets. Diverging from her usual practice of carefully staging her photographs, here Starkey immerses us in the real-time activity and language of communities that form through collective action. Rather than capturing the bustle of the huge crowds, Starkey offers moments of stoic solidarity as placards and banners speak the truths of the women holding them
