What They Leave Behind
We are drawn to certain places, but over time some places become not only geographical landmarks but also personal and biographical. Dublin Port is the place I consider to be my safe haven where this project began as a historical investigation. As it evolved, I realised my connection ran deeper. The images of Dublin Port became more personal, and I went in search of memories of my children. This project, What They Leave Behind weaves urban landscapes with images of objects from home. This process allowed me to acknowledge that my job as a full-time mother was complete with the recent emigration of my youngest daughter. The transience of Dublin Port helped me connect safely with this grief.
