The Wall
A series of street portraits celebrating the colour and character of Dublin’s Liberties. “The Wall” was a long term project spanning two years inspired in part by the work of American Photographer Mike Disfarmer and the aesthetic of a Beckett Play.The photographs were taken against the same strip of grey wall at the intersection of Carman’s Hall and the famed Meath Street located in the heart of the Liberties area with its vibrant market area serving the local community. It proved to be the perfect spot, allowing me to meet local people. The double yellow lines facilitated my ability to set up my tripod on the road to take full length portraits. All these small details were essential elements in finding the perfect backdrop for my project.I would like to thank everyone who so graciously stopped to have their photograph taken. The children, adults and some of the best behaved dogs in Dublin. I have heard the most wonderful stories and snapshots of Dublin history standing on my unique corner of The Liberties over the past two years. These photographs were taken using medium format colour negative film and my late Father’s 645 format camera.

Irish Water Charges
A crowd of between 30,000 to 40,000 people attended a protest against water charges in Dublin today. The Irish population have faced relentless austerity, new taxes and charges and have declared loudly that they will not accept the water tax. The controversial austerity measure is a key part of the government's plan to pay back the international financial bailout the state had to seek in 2010.
