Acrylic is my favorite medium onto which I mount my images. I just got a new 3m wide photo printed in the Copper House. It’s a 360° forest panoramic photo from Donadae Forrest in County Kildare. It’s a lovely place and thanks to my buddy Eamon for recommending it to me. The photo is a Durst Lambda Print mounted onto diamond polished acrylic, which gives the photo a lovely dramatic affect. The file actually had to be reduced so the clarity of the print is very impressive. Here you see a few images I took of the photo and a small video showing all that lovely detail. I alway aim to display my images in a way which maximized their impact. The forest series offers a very immersive experience for the viewer and it is only at these large sizes that one truly appreciates the sense of escape and peace which existed when I photograph these scenes.
I decided it would be really cool to document the whole process of the commission for the Marker Hotel. All of the video was captured on my iphone and my wee Canon S110 compact camera. I had such a laugh doing it. I’ve started shooting video of when I take the photo just to show how they were taken. I thought it would be nice to add them to my print releases on the site.
My friend Ronan Hand and his wife Louise shot a wee video during the launch of my exhibition Duality in the Copper House Gallery, I edited the footage into this video. I had a ball doing it. The exhibition consists of a series of large panoramic photos of the old swimming areas and baths along the coast of County Dublin. You can read more about the exhibition here. http://www.thecopperhousegallery.com/exhibitions/26/overview
Thanks so much to Louise and Ronan for shooting the launch. The exhibition runs until 24th November. The gallery is located on Saint Kevin’s Cottages, Synge Street, Dublin 2, Dublin, Ireland. Admission is free. So why not pop in.
My catalogue arrived today for my exhibition Duality. It looks great. Many thanks to the Castleprint for once again doing my printing. A fantastic result. It thought it was very important to recored the series of images.
