Suspended in time, homes lie abandoned, shrouded in mystery and overflowing with untold stories, creating a pervasive, unsettling feeling in these man-made spaces. Nature reclaims what once was hers. Exploring these locations gives me a thrill... A sense of magic. The process of decay fascinates me. The passing seasons have changed the colour and texture of everything. Visiting that house felt like invading somebody's past, seeing old letters and a 1985 calendar, covered with dust. Each room has it own personality but a constant is the religious presence, an enduring reminder of faith. A jacket still hangs on the wall... imparting a haunting dimension. This series of Polaroid photographs illuminate a segment of history, Irish emigration since the Famine.
