Set in the Gaeltacht region of Gleann Cholm Cille, south-west Donegal, in an area named after one of Ireland’s patron saints Colm Cille, The Gleann is a visual exploration into humankind’s imprint on a landscape. This remote and isolated region is the resting place of 6,000-year-old pagan monuments and cultural artefacts dating back to the 18th century. Despite the harsh Atlantic elements, life still flourishes here in this charged and transcendent place. This series is an archaeological and lyrical exploration into the remnants of human activity, juxtaposed against the prevailing natural elements of Ireland’s west coast. The images which look to the present, engage with traces from the past, reminding us that we too are all just passing through.
