Shooting the Phoenix
'Shooting the Phoenix' is a photographic exploration of Dublin's famous Phoenix Park, the largest enclosed space in Europe covering 1,752 acres. The project took nine months to shoot, ensuring a sample of the many times, seasons, moods and uses that characterise this beautiful and diverse jewel in the city centre. It is a place of recreation and work; a residence for some of the most important people in the land and some of the most exotic animals in the country. But most of all it is the people's park and, for me, a refuge from the busyness of life. Witnessed its magical transformation under a blanket of snow. Space and beauty combine to provide a tonic for the City's soul.
