Irish Social Photographer, focusing on the Dublin and Dun Laoghaire urban landscapes. Influences: Punk D.I.Y. attitude; Robert Frank; Fergus Bourke; Tony O'Shea; Pablo Picasso; Patti Smith; Martin Scorsese; The Clash; Jack Kerouac; Billie Holiday ... History: Inspired by the colour of Punk, left the grey Dublin of the 80s, to travel the world and fell in love with film photography. Returned to Dublin in the 90's and after the purchase of a digital camera in 2005, the obsession re-commenced. Since summer 2006 has been charting the daily lives of Dubliners of all different types, in their home environment, from Inner city Dublin to Dun Laoghaire. Capturing unique people doing what they do, in their natural state, whether that is happy, sad ,laughing, having fun ,mischievous or just survival . Making the ordinary look special, and exhibiting something thats real, alive and different - thats the aim - displaying the unspeakable. Making art accessible to all and not just the elite.
