Trifecta is a body of work that investigates the idea that the rules and regulations of gambling can change society's involvement in a sport. It photographs the rapidly declining crowds at Irish racecourses in contrast with prospering crowds in Hong Kong and Dubai. Through the photographs and text in the photo book there is a stark realisation that the loss of crowds at Irish racecourses are due to competitive off-course betting companies and below standard racecourse facilities. It is a period of time where there is a huge increase in online gambling, betting shops and gambling addictions, and this project sociologically investigates the effects betting has on the horse racing industry and attempts to awaken the need for change.
