Spirit GrocersSpirit Grocers is collection of portraits of tradesmen from across Dublin City. I wanted to create a compelling series of portraits of people whose trade had been slowly disregarded in today's modern society and one that is primarily seen as obsolete. These are trusted characters, the listers of a thousand stories, the ear to so many problems, the conversation starter on a quiet evening. I wanted to give recognition to these workers. The series invites the viewer into a previously unexposed space in a Dublin pub. The cellar unifies the series visually and also allowed me to photograph each person in a quiet space away from a visually and aurally noisy environment.
