The Still

This photobook combines a series of images shot in different locations across Ireland and Europe from 2014 to the present, exploring both the concept of instant photography and the presence of textual elements within images. With a passing reference to Neoplasticism’s publications De Stijl, its cover repurposes an Irish country pub window into a self commenting photographic image where the text is integrated as both form and title. Other images use fleeting forms, frozen within the frame and indistinguishably combined with inert taxidermy bodies or minerals in museum collections. 1
