TPS Meeting Tuesday 5th Nov at 8.00pm in the Maldron Hotel, Tallaght.
Barry was inspired by the colour and DIY attitude of Punk, in the grey Dublin of the early 80s, fell in love with film photography and took off travelling the globe. Fully self taught , he eked a living, working in bands, restaurants , building sites , before returning to Dublin to settle down. The love affair with the lens got re-awakened in 2006 following recovery from personal issues and the purchase of an Nikon SLR – the obsession truly took of with new clear mature eyes.
Throughout 2007, he charted the daily lives of ordinary Dubliners, in their home environment – from Inner city Dublin to Ballymun and beyond. Capturing real Dub’s doing what they do – be it happy, sad, mischievous, angry or just amorous. Making the ordinary look special, while retaining the very soul of it’s people … 2007 was a dramatic year in Irish life – the peak of the Celtic Tiger, before it’s dramatic collapse in 2008, to the dark day’s of today.
He has since divirsifed himself beyond Dublin, documenting life from Limerick to Belfast, sailing on into the Albion, then zigzagging my way across America by Greyhound and on into Africa and Asia, looking for the wonders of the world.
