Pigheaded, Perverse and Oddly Beautiful.
Patrick Ryan's major project is based around the lower grades of the GAA, junior A, B and C. This lower standard of hurling and football sees a lot of older men playing, mostly aged between 30-40. However, it is also a stepping stone for the younger players, such as the eighteen, nineteen year olds make the leap to the senior grades. This project aims to depict players in their truest state, showing character, sense of reality, and elements of loss that is the backbone of the GAA.
