The Port of Cork
The series of photographs explore The Port of Cork. The project focuses on industrial buildings, which currently exist but due to proposed development plans for the area, will soon be extinct. The relocation of the port to Ringaskiddy will change the landscape of the port to residential and commercial developments. Historically, it was once the industrial hub of the city with all the cities imports and export passing through. Currently it is mostly bulk feed, fertiliser, coal and grain which are imported through the port. The series of images documents the existing structures. It focuses on the materiality, the lifeless subject matter and the beauty present in the decay of the industrial landscape before it disappears. All images were shot using a medium format camera and 120 B7W film.
