Irish Eyes

For the last little while I've been delving into the work of contemporary Irish photographers, particularly those who are engaged in long term bodies of work and I've been totally blown away by both the strength and diversity of the contemporary Irish photography scene. I decided I would try and reach out to a few of these snappers and conduct a series of interviews which I'll hopefully publish here on Milky Blacks in the coming months.

On on hand, it's been an unexpected and pleasant surprise to find so much work that both represents Ireland and 'Irishness' falling into the kind of stereotypes that make these words a little tough on the stomach.

It's also been inspiring to see Irish photographers who are pushing their way to the top of the international photography scene whether through their globe-trotting exploits or their idiosyncratic works in the fine art field.

Anyway both the quality of the bodies of work I have seen so far and the absence, in my mind, of this collective strength being represented in our twenty four hour news cycle and in easily digestible form led me to have a stab at collecting this talented lot into a kind of ongoing series. Watch this space for more coming soon and without further ado its 'Irish Eyes #01'
