Jason Smyth keeps pigeons on the roof of the church.

Ever since he was a young boy growing up in Dublin, where Jason and his best friend would build secret lofts in derelict buildings across the city, it was his dream to one day have a pigeon loft just like this.

Just over two years ago Jason’s wife died after a short, yet brave, battle with cancer. Soon after, his pastor suggested he build a pigeon loft on the roof of the church.

During 2010 I spent a year with Jason, making work about his pigeons, his faith and the process of mourning and moving on.
