I was Interviewed for a Newspaper about one of my Photography Projects
Last week I was approached for an interview about one of my photography projects by a fairly prominent online newspaper here in Ireland. The piece they were interested in was a project I did charting the progress of the cross city tram construction that took place in Dublin over the past few years. The request came out of the blue and took me a little by surprises, but they did a good article following the interview.
I had started shooting the construction works a few years ago. It wasn’t really going to be a specific project at first, but after a while it was something that had become a significant part of what I was doing when shooting street photography. The Tram line is now open, and in full use, so it is good to have a document on it. The article in the paper was more interested in why I decided to shoot the construction, and why I tired to find something artistic in the otherwise disruptive roadworks.
You can see the interview and article on my project here, on the Journal.ie website. My original photo essay on the project is on my Streets of Dublin website.
