Statement

“Abandoned Ireland”

I seek out buildings that are abandoned, neglected, overlooked or are facing demolition in the Irish countryside. I talk to people about these places to discover who lived, worked in them, taking many photographs of the building and the surrounding area. I am interested in capturing the ethereal and lost memories of these places, creating a link between the past and the present.

The altered images are transferred onto a variety of papers and fabrics and stacked in layers, each different from the one beneath representing distinct chapters in the history of the building.
