Description

Where the spirit meets the bones is a euphoric celebration of “life”, of our existence, of our earth’s existence and of all the cosmos.
 
This body of work is inspired by Irish Folklore, the entirety of this project was shot in Ireland, a landscape rich with mythical tales, I could feel a world existing around me that I could not see when I was in the forest, I have tried to re create that feeling in this photographs.

Nature is viewed as a god in this series, as the higher power guiding us through our life and through to the next one, the forest holds our secrets, it holds our past and all our mythical tales. A source of inspiration and calmness for so many, it has been where we belong since the beginning of time, as time continues, we seem to have forgotten that. This series hopes to remind us that we are all apart of nature and we can always return to it.

I am a Dublin-based visual artist. Currently in my final year of studying photography in IADT. I began photographing when I was 14, I travelled to South Africa and fell in love with capture the new landscape and African animals, I have been photographing ever since. Over time my photographs have become more and more of a source of creative expression, they are now more than what I see before my lenses, they are what I see inside my mind, and my camera lens is the tool I use to create them. I strongly believe that everyone views the world differently, and in taking photographs, I get to show how I view the world, what is important to me that maybe no one else sees.

My work concerns existential questioning and is centred around the natural world, I enjoy exploring human’s connection (or disconnection) with nature and hope to bring to light the ways in which we are separating ourselves farther and farther from nature. I hope through my work that I will help us recognize that we are a part of nature, we are in harmony with it and we are not separate from it. Nor should we try to be.
On top of this, I explore my own existential questioning through my work, heavily inspired by the theories of philosopher Alan Watts as well as phenomenology, I use an overlaying technique to create new dimensions inside our own world which appear as dreamlike scenes that thin the veil with the spirit world.
My photographs also play with our interpretations of time, I work through my archive as well as creating new work, blending images from different time periods, questioning the effects that time really has and the ability that a camera has to pause scenes in time.
