Welcome To Hell
These photographs attempt to put the physical reality of the economic downturn on display: the abrupt halting of residential building activity and the entire situation are made visible with the many new unfinished housing estates to be seen across Ireland. Unfinished houses and apartments are dispersed throughout our landscape. These monuments are a constant reminder of the unchecked expansion and boom-time. The question of how to resolve the problem hangs over these sites. This has been an ongoing investigation, which started in November 2007. The journey has taken me to several counties around Ireland, including Cavan, Dublin, Leitrim, Longford, Sligo and Wicklow.
