What We Left Behind
This project is concerned with what we leave behind, and what we cannot. Shot on location in Howth, North County Dublin, the image seeks to outline the haunting tension between innocence and experience, while striving to embody the essence and mood of isolation. A young boy looks towards an older subject, perhaps for guidance, but she herself is removed from the moment, transfixed on something unseen. Are they lost in these woods? In this project I sought to create a sense of timelessness, through the use of location, subjects, costume and set decoration. This careful selection process allowed me to create a photograph with the correct atmosphere in which I could properly convey what I had imagined.
