All That Remains
'All That Remains' is essentially an auto-ethnographic exploration of Ireland through a collection of contextualised landscape photographs; reflected through the prism of my own dichotomous relationship to it as a personal point of both origin and departure. Connecting ancestral histories to the contemporary Irish landscape, the images trace the outline of a journey back into the mists of time. Woven between the strands of this narrative are symbolic themes, which attempt to find resonance (as referents or metaphors) with aspects of the collective Irish experience, including relics and graveyards, abandoned homes and ritual sites (totems to both existence and displacement/death/departure), alongside contemporary representations of flickering childhood memories that seek to capture the romance and mystery of the Irish landscape.
