This Desolate Land
'This Desolate Land' investigates the everyday, perceived as a psychological representation of uncertainty, thus avoiding literal representations of the current economic crisis. The photographs are produced and located within a rigorous boundary identified within the limits of by the N11 road, which connects the rural topography of County Wexford to the suburban edges of Dublin and finally Dublin city centre. This series incorporates both portraits and landscape imagery, together they evoke a sense of place both intimate and uncertain. The juxtaposition of portraits and empty landscapes is a constant reminder that land is not simply a commodity for development and exploitation. There are communities connected to and dependent upon sustainable economic policies.
