“No Place Like Home”, 2018 | Brian Cooney
Brian is an Irish photographer with his latest body of work concerned with the West of Ireland - the way it's idealised and used as an inspirational symbol to influence Irish audiences and to sell Ireland abroad. It was sparked by his return to live in rural Ireland in 2012. He is currently preparing an exhibition of the work in the public library in Ballina, Co. Mayo. It will run for two weeks with the opening night taking place on the 31st May with an artist's talk and all are welcome! The work has also been featured in the PhotoIreland Photography Festival 2018.
We asked Brian to tell us more about his featured series.
