Looking forward to doing a stall at the Ha’Penny Flea Market – The Grand Social (35 Lower Liffey St, Dublin) this Saturday 4th of April (12-6) and at the Pure Vintage Fair at the Food Coop (12 Newmarket Square, Dublin) from 11am till 5pm on Easter Sunday (Here’s a handy map to find it). As usual, I’ll have many prints of my black and white and colour photographs of Dublin, some of them limited editions handmade in the darkroom, like the photograph above.

Street Photography Course in Block T!

I’m very excited to be teaching a street photography course as part of the film and digital photography courses offered by the Darkroom at Block T, starting on Tuesday 3rd of February. Taking candid photographs of everyday life is very much the driving force of my photography and I’m very happy to have the opportunity to share my experience in this genre through this course. I will offer tips on composition and techniques with many examples from both my own photographs and images by classic and modern street photography masters like Henri Cartier Bresson, Elliot Erwitt, Trent Parke, etc. (handouts with useful lists and bibliography will be given). All levels are welcome although a basic understanding of your camera is expected (any type of camera, film or digital, slr or rangefinder, compact cameras, or even a phone camera will be appropriate). The dates and times are:
- Tuesday 3rd February 6.30-9.30 pm (including a short break). Bring your cameras and meet at the Block T reception. An assignment will be given at the end of this class.
- Saturday 7th February: full day starting with a review of the assignments in Block T form 11.30 am, a lunch break, and a guided photowalk in Dublin city centre in the afternoon.
- Tuesday 10th February 6.30-9.30
Cost of course: 145 euro. More info here. To book or for more information please email info@darkroom.ie.

Analogue 2 Exhibition – continued!

I’m delighted the Block T Darkroom has selected this photograph of mine, along with other work from the Analogue 2 exhibition by Block T students, to be on show in Third Space Cafe till the 6th of September. I took this image in Dun Laoghaire in February 2014, as part of my Five streets project in 35mm black and white film. It was hand printed by myself in the Block T Darkroom on Fibre Based paper and is a first print of a limited edition of 30. The 12 x 9½ inch is in a 30×40 cm frame and is for sale for €120, 25% of this amount going to local charity Capuchin Day Centre who feed the poor on 29 Bow street.

Irish Street Photography exhibition 15-22 August

I was very excited to take part in the first Irish Street Photography Exhibition with this image I took on Francis street, Dublin, in June 2014 (the wonderful street art is by Solus). The exhibition took place from the 15th to the 22nd of August in Culture Box, Temple Bar, Dublin (more details in facebook event). I was also really delighted to have this image featured in the Art Photo Feature Magazine Finest Street Photography Gallery back in June, many thanks to the APF team for selecting my photograph! This photograph is currently on display in the Yoga Hub, 27 Camden Place, Dublin.

Scoop Art Charity Auction 2014

I’m very happy to be contributing a limited edition silver gelatin print of my work ‘Shadows at Harold’s Cross’ to the Scoop Foundation Art Charity Auction 2014 for education and community development in India and Cambodia. The launch party will be at Film Base (Temple Bar, Dublin) from 5.30pm on Friday June 13th and the auction will take place there on Saturday 14th at 2pm. This is the third year I’m participating in this charity and I’m delighted the proceeds from the sale of my photograph will be helping a very worthy cause.
