In the streets
‘In the streets’ is a photography project in which I photographed people randomly encountered on the streets of Dublin.
Each of those people attracted me and resonated with me in some way on a personal level. It could be the way they look, or how they dress. It could be their beauty, or their quirkiness. It could be the fact that they look familiar to someone I know, or knew in the past.
Those people have no masks. The masks conceal our personality and uniqueness. We become disconnected from people and reality around us. Masks create distance and I wanted to look closer, trying to get a sneak peek with my camera into their world and path, even for a split second.
