GRADUATE PHOTOGRAPHY ONLINE 2016

Gillian McElroy

I photographed amateur musicians in Northern Ireland, playing Irish traditional music in their sitting rooms at home. They are a mix of young and old, from different communities and playing a range of instruments. As amateurs, the practice is more important than the performance and each musician gave a different reason for playing, from de-stressing, to developing their creativity, to building their skills, to simple enjoyment. I photographed each musician in their own home where they were most comfortable playing. It felt important to record the environment, with the décor, ornaments and signs of life that each person had built around them. I approached each location as part of the mise-en-scene, helping to tell the sitter's story and give the viewer an insight into the role of music in their daily life.
