About the Artist
In 2005 a small part of The Smithfield Collection was acquired by The National Photographic Archive in Dublin, Ireland.
This collection only recently archived, has not yet been published or exhibited so I hope people will really enjoy seeing them for the first time. Portraiture, is one of my favorite areas to photograph and have been photographing very well known Actors and Actresses, which when they are archived I will publish them on Artclick. I became really interested in creating photographs that told their own story. As best I could I tried to be unobtrusive to try and create what I hope are some truly memorable black and white images of The Smithfield Markets, documenting some of Dublin’s youngest, most colorful and fearless characters before it was lost to the rejuvenation of Smithfield, some 16 years ago. Since 1995 I have completed a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Film School, producing many award winning short films, commercials, music videos and documentaries resulting in being shortlisted in many film festivals around Ireland, U.K, Italy, France, Spain, and The International Film Festival in Los Angeles in 2002. After college I continued working on funded short films, feature films and documentary’s with artists Rasher and Graham Knuttel.
