Faith, Belief and Superstition in Donegal
I am a curious audience, fascinated that someone on their way to Mass can drive past a fairy tree which is revered because of evil spirits. I am overawed when I see a well-tended holy well in an otherwise remote or barren land, or a church that has been built by the edge of a lake, at the base of a mountain. It makes me consider with great reverence the faith that someone has had to firstly build and then to visit and tend these sites of faith. My images have all been taken on large format, 5" x 4" film, which is particularly suited to highlight the sweeping Donegal landscapes, allowing me to look at the expressions of faith from a distance.
