This work draws attention to Ireland’s “Wild Atlantic Way”, a 1,553 mile trail running the entire West coast. I approached this journey with a sense of possibility, exploration and discovery, and with an awareness of the tradition of documenting the open road. It touches on the connections between people, the land they occupy and the details that speak of every day life along this stretch of land. Considering themes of isolation and remoteness, the project draws upon the notions and shared myths which define people’s experience of The Emerald Isle in order to create a feeling of serenity. Furthermore it touches on religion, which I found to be an inherently prominent feature in the landscape still today.
