Note, this page is still being assembled.

Images on this page are copyright Rae (Rachel) Starr.  At the moment the automatic image copyright attribution goes to me, but this will be altered in the bowels of website when I find the complex stuff.

Rae (Rachel) Starr is primarilly a textile artist.  The images on this page are photograpic works by Rae Starr with a Zero 5x4 Pinhole Camera and printed as silver gelatine prints or as cyanotypes.  In addition to camera based images Rae works with plant form photogrammes in cyanotype on textiles.  These textile cyanotype prints are then used within larger textile works.

Rae Starr started working with textiles at the age of seven and photography after her mother bought her a Kodak Vecta 127 camera for her ninth birthday.  Rae also works with a Zeiss Contaflex, the prettiest SLR ever made.  Currently 5 x 7" and 10 x 8" pinhole cameras specific to Rae Starr's needs are being built.  Rare Starr intends to use these for her planned Wheatbelt portfolios.

More to follow when Rae Starr finally decides to do the writing to head this page.
