Reconstructing scenes from the everyday, Hannah Starkey infuses them with the stylisation of film that is characteristic of her work. Her photographs emerge from a split second and yet are resolved into what appears as an extended moment in time. These carefully composed scenarios have the sense of compressed narratives, offering a rich and detailed story presented to us through the smallest of clues: the position of a glass; the pool of shadow; the averted gaze of the figure.
