‘Inspire Sisterhood’, Women’s March, London 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.
