This body of work was taken in the Forty-Foot in Dublin Bay, a place which  features significantly within the literary work of James Joyce. With the donning of bathing suits, the overt signifiers of class and status, as well as social inhibitions, are rendered invisible thanks to the equality brought about through the activity of swimming.  Indeed, for many, the swim has become a regular year-round ritual and an important aspect of their lives where the constraints of everyday existence are washed away by the sea.  The quality of the light, the endless motion of the waves, as well as the sea’s ever-changing moods all serve to create an environment where the mundane is immersed within the forces of nature and dissolved into insignificance.
