I'm very happy seeing my photograph from Spiddal, Co. Galway published in the French weekly magazine Courrier International (issue #1431, April 5th). It is a double page opening of the 36 pages dedicated to Ireland.
For the past 14 years, a Photography Department of the Stivers School for the Arts in Dayton, Ohio has held a silent auction to raise money for their program.
This year’s auction is set for April 13, 2018. I've been asked if I could donate a piece of my work for their fundraiser. I'm gladly sending two prints taken at Clonmel racecourse some time ago.
I exposed my first ever roll of Kodak Tri-X 400 at the Iverk Show in Piltown, Co. Kilkenny on 26th August 2017. It took almost two months before I could see the results. I must say that I am really pleased.
I don't really want to be a part of film vs. digital discussion. I will continue shooting digital but every so often I will expose a roll of Tri-X or Portra when I feel like doing so.
Some of the reasons why I've decided to try shooting film.
- Nostalgia - I wanted to take photographs as a kid, but I could rarely afford buying and developing the film. Nowadays I can 'waste' money the way I want to :-)
- A need of slowing down and thinking more before pressing the shutter.
- Sometimes it is fun to do something without an instant gratification.
- Somehow it feels different. It helps me getting closer and more personal to the people I photograph.
I am very happy to share that my photograph from Salthill is one of the finalists of the Brussels Street Photography Festival 2017.
All finalist photos will be printed and displayed in the Brussels Street Photography Festival from Friday, October 6 until Friday, October 20, 2017 at Galerie Ravenstein, Brussels.
@ Clonmel Junction Festival 2017
A few shots from Clonmel town. Mostly from the Clonmel Junction Festival. 08 Jul 2017
Seven months, three four-day sessions, six masters and sixteen international guest speakers — this was #VIIMasterclassBerlin! It was amazing to be part of it.
