Definition of "stark":
1. Bare or blunt: ?His language has become increasingly stark, to the point of sounding strident? .
2. Complete or utter; extreme: stark poverty; a stark contrast.
3. Harsh; grim: ?faced with that stark future?

There isn't a specific type of cinematography defined as "stark" per se, it's just an adjective that can describe something harsh-looking, bleak, a bit barren. Let's say, someone standing under a bare light bulb in a dingy bathroom or under a bare fluorescent bulb in an empty room. Tends to be single-source lighting somewhat high in contrast that is somewhat harsh and unforgiving.

It would also be possible to refer to my own cinematography as Stark cinematography.

... Sorry, couldn't resist! ;)
