PHOTOGRAPHY FOR SOCIAL CHANGE
Photographer and curator originally from Miami, Florida is currently living and working in Asheville, North Carolina. Starr picked up a camera in 2012 during a challenging period in her life and looking through the camera’s viewfinder was the beginning of her personal revolution.
Starr’s work focuses on using photography for social change. She is driven to tell stories of others that don’t often appear in the collective community gaze. Her past projects have featured women with disabilities and formerly incarcerated women. Starr believes the subjects’ own stories alongside portraits are powerful agents for change. Starr’s work has been featured in The Bakehouse Miami, Art Palm Beach, Wynwood: Art Basel (Miami, FL) and The Coral Gables Museum. Starr has been frequently invited to podcasts, art talks and panels discussing photography for social change.
