Some Quite Brilliant Irish Photographers – And I Know Them!!!

Not too long ago, I hosted a party for my old photography class. Well, tonight I attended an exhibition that was hosted by two of my former classmates.

Irish artists Diarmait Grogan and William Hamilton spent a year in Shanghai, culminating in a shared photographic portrayal of the city. Shanghai Ritual is an atmospheric study of place and displacement, set in the largest city proper in the world in 2013.

I would love to post some of their photos because they are fantastic. If you are interested, here are their websites…

I’ve been in touch with Diarmait and he doesn’t mind if I post a few of his photos.

    Moving, inspiring and wonderful. Thank you.

  3. The 2nd and 3rd have the quality of a painting – – – without knowing I’d be left wondering whether it was artist’s strokes and interpretation or reality. Lovely!

    I love these posts! Also, can you explain the first one- what is he holding/shooting into the air?

    And keep your photos coming, too 🙂

    Sometimes (always) it is cathartic to look at the beautiful. I can’t begin to tell you how much I enjoyed it. I’m gonna pick up my camera again.
