Joe O'Brien

My work is informed by existential ideas subject to solitude. From understanding the tender differences between loneliness and ‘aloneness’, I thereby explore what brings meaning to ourselves when in these two states. The idea of human connection becomes prevalent within the photographs; particularly those with figures. The distance between subject matter and where the photograph was taken speaks for our natural longing for connection. The singular figure informs the desire for connection, while the pairs resolve this. The photographs which lack human presence manifest the very act of searching for this substantial connection. The relationship between the space and its minimal occupation of objects project a form of solitude in these photographs.
