This photographic and editorial project combines a series of images shot in different locations across Ireland and Europe from 2014 to the present, exploring both the concept of instant photography and the presence of textual elements within images.
With a passing reference to Neoplasticism’s publications “De Stijl”, its cover repurposes an Irish country pub window into a self commenting photographic image where the text is integrated as both form and title.
Other images use fleeting forms, frozen within the frame and indistinguishably combined with inert taxidermied bodies or minerals in museum collections.


Magazine photo créé à partir d’une série de photographies prises entre 2014 et 2017 dans divers pays. Ce projet développe le concept d’instantané et la présence d’éléments textuels au sein des images.
