Tomorrow is Sunday is a project which engages with my return to the family farm following the death of my brother in 2013. Up until this point my brother had thoughtfully managed the farm for almost three decades, and the task of keeping things going was then conferred to my sister and I. Developed throughout this intervening period, the work reflects on the day-to-day demands of farming life and contemplates photography’s role in communicating the magnitude of this life-changing event.
About the Artist
Irish artist, Miriam O’Connor lives and works in Cork. In her practice she draws inspiration from the language, sights and sounds of the everyday. She is especially interested in the role photography plays within this context and how photography itself acts out everyday life. She is concerned with the subtleties of looking and seeing, the relationship between camera and viewer, and the special ambiguity of still images. Rather than providing answers, O’ Connor work often poses questions, while her images are playful and curious in approach. 1
