I have spent months working directly with the Green Party, and specifically with Catherine Martin, TD for Dublin Rathdown, photographing a range of political events which together represent the working life of an Irish female politician in Dublin. Martin is the Deputy Leader for the Green Party, spokesperson for education and the acting chairperson of the Women's Caucus. This has given me particular insight into how political communication strategies are formed and how a TD interacts with both the media and the public as policies are launched. This body of work is sensitive to the current moment as 2018 marks the centenary of women's suffrage. The campaign to inspire more women to run for political office in Ireland is ongoing. This photographic project thus focuses on media representations of women in the Irish political life and shows moments the public would not usually be able to see.
