For my project I wanted to document the ever changing landscape of Dublin's city centre. Having grown up in Dublin the city is an intrinsic part of me, and I have watched it change through the years with interest. Across Ireland, high streets that were once individual and unique are slowly becoming globalised and homogenous lacking character. I wanted to document walk around stores (that I remember from my childhood), independent stores and niche specialist stores. Yes, it's more convenient to shop online or in large malls on the outskirts of the city with ample parking but we're missing out on the joy of discovery, discovering shops we may have walked past hundreds of times. These shops are what makes Dublin's city centre unique and I hope they will carry on trading for generations to come.
