'I think they'll have to go'
Dublin and its architecture has greatly influence my photographic practice which now centres on photographing urban and suburban landscapes and documenting and archiving the changing city. This project concentrates on Dublin's Docklands, once a thriving port area, which has undergone an extraordinary regeneration since the 1990s and in this process of transformation different urban landscapes emerged. The old architecture of the docklands consisted of predominantly red brick buildings while the modern architecture is determined by steel, glass, patterns, reflection and light. The challenge of this photographic narrative was to discover and capture the juxtaposition of modernity and history. This serves to emphasize the encroachment of 21st century technology over the existing historical structures and to show the precarious state of what was once the traditional and industrial heart of working class Dublin.
