Knocknacree

A weekend refuge from the humdrum of city living, the solitude of Stradbally, Co. Waterford seemed the most unlikely of locations to serve as a backdrop to a 26 month photographic study. The serenity when interrogated would part with the most unassuming and generous of characters and over time would reveal its true self. I moved through the countryside in every possible direction and every now and then this quietest of characters would reveal something of itself through its inhabitants. The more time I spent there, the more this hard landscape would soften. The more it would let me in. The more I would understand.
