Yggdrasil

14 Jul

The tree, with its branches reaching up into the sky, and roots deep into the earth, can be seen to dwell in three worlds – a link between heaven, the earth, and the underworld, uniting above and below. It is also both a feminine symbol, bearing sustenance; and a masculine, phallic symbol – another union.

Dendrolatry

Trees have played an important role in many of the world’s mythologies and religions, and have been given deep and sacred meanings throughout the ages. Human beings, observing the growth and death of trees, the elasticity of their branches, the sensitivity and the annual decay and revival of their foliage, see them as powerful symbols of growth, decay and resurrection. The most ancient cross-cultural symbolic representation of the universe’s construction is the world tree.

He likes the poor things of the world the best,
I would not, therefore, if I could be rich.
It pleases him to stoop for buttercups.

Exeter

27 May

I just got back from a weekend in Exeter visiting some friends. Treks through cemeteries, cathedrals and Dartmoor naturally ensued. Here are some of my photos.

From the Archives: Gruagairí

6 May

Back in 2007 I was asked to photograph rehearsals for an Irish language play called Gruagairí (Hair), which was produced by the Aisling Ghéar Theatre Company and performed at various venues throughout Northern Ireland, including Culturlann McAdam Ó Fiaich on Falls Road, Belfast. Written by Dave Duggan (writer of the Academy Award nominated short film Dance Lexie Dance), Gruagairí tells of two young friends who open a hairdressing salon together in Belfast, only to eventually discover that they want very different things from life.

The photos I took were used as promotional material for the play. It was a tentative foray into freelance photography and really enabled me to become comfortable photographing people.
