Exhibition Installs

This blog’s been pretty quiet over the past while. Photography took a back-seat to the new business we started at Two Rooms in Dublin. I think I’m ready for a new project.

I finally got around to pulling together some documentation photos from the various exhibitions over the past few years and put them on the website (a job long overdue). See Installations on the menu, bottom-left, or click here!

A Fantabulous Masked Ball

I was lucky enough to have been photographer at one of the most glamorous parties I have ever been to. The setting was a masked ball in a castle in the depths of Meath. The castle is uninhabitable at present. Enter my better half Kevin. A whiz at dressing TV & film sets, he made it look pretty damn hot by the time of the party, and very very convincing.

A large crowd of feathers, masks and wide dresses waddled slowly through the space. Candle wax dripped from the chandeliers onto costumes, feathers tickled the cheeks of passers by, all to the the sounds and smells of a string quartet and burning candles.

More champagne please.

After a drinks reception and food, folk headed downstairs to a nightclub that appeared out of nowhere, as if by magic. Earlier, I had set up a photography studio in the smallest space possible. Theatre ensued.


A real face of austerity

I pretty much stopped traffic to take this shot walking my dog this morning. The campaign is about older people who are afraid of losing valuable and necessary homehelp support. One of the real faces of this ridiculous economical mess. The board is around the corner from Mick Wallace’s restaurant on the North Circular Road.
