Keogh’s work contemplates our history as written in the City’s buildings. A city that renews itself as it tears down and replaces the old, sometimes pausing to preserve that which is deemed significant, historic, or aesthetically pleasing, and in so doing writes its own diary, a history written in concrete, glass, and steel. Stitching together multiple images to create highly detailed portraits of the buildings that make up our city, Keogh points a forensic lens, not just at the Architecture that surrounds us but also at who we are as a people and a Nation. Presented in stark isolation from their surroundings, the viewer is invited to engage with the building itself as well as the history embedded therein.
