Dreams of Ireland is a series of black and white landscapes taken during my travels. It was my first trip to Ireland in the summer of 2007. I stayed at the home of Father Martin Hughes, a family friend whose cottage overlooked the Irish Sea. Having grown up Irish Catholic, I knew this was a good omen.

The beauty of Ireland’s countryside along with the constantly changing weather allowed me to create some incredible images. With three plastic Holga cameras, each with their own unique qualities and personalities, I was off and running. Through pouring rain and puddles of mud there were moments of brilliant sunshine, creating breathtaking plays of shadow and light.
