Summary: ‘Still’ is presented as a personal and self-reflective work. The book was created and produced over two years in a remote part of rural Ireland where I lived. It offers a view of the people and spaces that were near to me during that time. It is a carefully edited series, with each photograph changing the visual meaning of this place and my relationship to it. It is a work about looking and trying to connect. Sometimes It is about being unable to do either. Within this complex arrangement of alienated moments and impulses, there is a story that wants to be told; a story about intimacy with a place and the failure of the photograph to ever truly represent this. But this is a work that I hope
transcends personal experience to also address broader, more expansive ideas about perception, memory, beauty, fragility, loss and love; themes that go beyond the individual and have relevance to everyone.
