Twenty-Nine Kilometres from Dublin
This series of photographs explores a commuter town in Ireland, its landscape, and the young people who have grown up there. Dunshaughlin in County Meath is a town in transition, both in terms of its landscape and its inhabitants, there is an increasing blurring of boundaries between rural, urban and industrial topographies. This work explores new visual conceptualisations of a commuter town that, in essence, is exemplary of many towns all over Ireland. There is a sense that these young men and women are also in transition, the carefree days of their youth has passed, replaced by an uncertain future, a desire to seek a new life? Or to continue the certainty of living in a small town in Ireland?
