Description of book: ‘Still’ was made over two years in a remote part of Ireland. It’s a book about looking and trying to see. Sometimes, It’s about not being able to see. Mostly, it’s about intimacy with a person and a place and the failure of the photograph to ever truly represent that. It’s best experienced in a visual way because It makes no sense.
The best thing about self-publishing: Not having to put my name on the cover. The photographs inside become the signature.

Book Soundtrack: While I was making the book, I lived in a cottage. There was a cave beside the cottage. I recorded this performance by Caoimhín Ó’ Raghallaigh in the cave in 2011.
