Thought provoking minimal images from Roscommon born / Dublin based documentary photographer Martin Cregg. In 2010 Martin was one of the Irish nominations for the Prix Pictet. In 2011 his ‘Photo Course’ project was shortlisted for the FOAM Talent Call.
Have a look at Martin’s blog for some interesting thoughts on his work and ongoing projects such as ‘The Photo Course’ which documents “the subtle changes to the environment left by the transience of people. The ephemeral nature of the environment is evident throughout. Thus it speaks of ‘detachment’. In a sense it is also about subtle ‘destruction’ of the building – micro-events which happen in the duration of a day, a year which become part of the history of the photography course.”
Martin Cregg’s project ‘Midlands,’ is a three-year series examining the Irish Midlands, which looks at the urban/rural divide and is available to purchase as a book at the ‘Gallery of Photography Dublin’.
