You should take a picture of Ollie Bolger
These photographs were taken over the course of the first year living in Crumlin, south Dublin. The work seeks to create a visual record of the area and its residents by capturing moments that represent both what the area is like and what people in Crumlin do. The intention of the work is to translate my own experience of living in Crumlin while also challenging any preconceptions of the place. By showing fragmented elements of the community, the narrative is not conventional, but rather it represents the random nature of life in a typical city suburb. As for Ollie Bolger, I was advised that he was quite the character and that I should definitely take his picture. Unfortunately that was no longer possible. Deceased 2015.
