Eamonn Doyle explores recent bodies of work by the Irish photographer (Dublin, 1969). Living in the center of the capital, Doyle photographs his surroundings from unexpected angles, revealing an original vision of the city and its inhabitants.
His series i, ON, and End., otherwise known as the Dublin trilogy, with their strategic cropping and framing, convey moments of stillness and frenetic energy, solitude and community.
Doyle’s newest body of work, K, is his most mysterious and personal. These color photographs show a series of spectral figures of continually shifting form set against the dramatic backgrounds of Ireland’s west coast and southwestern Spain. The series references the Irish tradition of keening, a vocal lamentation for the dead, and was born in part from the premature losses of the artist’s brother and mother.
