The images in these series are an attempt to capture beauty in these places where industrial sites meet nature, the beauty that exists between the decay and the ordinary life. The aim here is to bring harmony out of an assortment of abandoned objects, abandoned places, natural and industrial landscapes.
Ultimately, this body of work is a meditation on the new Irish landscape, and more importantly, a foreigner’s impressions of this landscape.
Living in a new country and starting a new life, everything around me is inspiring, and photography is a way for me to keep my thoughts and impressions of the places I have lived.
