True West is moving to Mayo

12th August 2012
I had a busy time of it preparing for the opening of the exhibition - there are plenty of things I'm still learning and I'm loving it all. I was kind of nervous before the evening came around but it turned out to be a great occasion in the end - relaxed and overall very positive for me.

Leo opened the show with a few words that really made the night for me. Despite the fact that we hadn't talked much beforehand everything he said was as though he was talking through me, and in a far more eloquent way than I could have ever phrased it - he spoke about peoples' relationship with landscapes and light and our place in the world, the effort in getting good photographs and how photography can reconnect us with the land. He said everything I've wanted to express about people, landscapes and photography to the point that I had nothing left to say afterwards! Thank you Leo, thanks to everybody in Connemara National Park for helping me with the exhibit and to my parents for coming along and helping me set up. And to those who came to the opening, and those of you kind of enough to think my pictures are worth buying.

The exhibit runs in Connemara until this coming Friday afternoon (17th August). I'm moving it to Ballycroy National Park for two weeks afterwards so if anybody in Mayo would like to see it see the details in the poster below.
