Me Jewel and Darlin' Dublin
These images are based on observations I make during my daily experience of traveling around Dublin. I am inspired by the words of the photographer William Eggleston, who stated in his landmark book The Democratic Forest (2012), “no subject matter is more or less important than another”. I see artistic beauty in the everyday normality of things. Amidst the hectic pace of life nowadays, these wonders are regularly missed. I aim to show the convergence of old and new and illustrate how nature can survive in neglected buildings, creating something beautiful and unique. The title of this work plays on the famous book title ‘Me Jewel and Darlin’ Dublin’ by Eamonn MacThomais.
