Myths help us to understand how our ancestors once lived. They were formed to help guide individuals in their existence and purpose in the world. As myths have been passed down generation to generation orally and through objects left behind, they serve a deep purpose in letting us look at our environment, our connections to others and our cultural practices. My work looks at moments relating to the Tain Bó Cúailgne, known as the Cattle Raid of Cooley from the Ulster Cycle in Irish Mythology. Using photography, I create work by going to on-site locations connected to this legend in counties across Connaught and Leinster. I visually manipulate these images of the Irish landscape bridging time, memory, and fragments in a contemporary light.
