PROTECTION | Vintage, Analog Photography | Fine Art Print




This is the 19th century Galley Head lighthouse near Roscarberry in Co. Cork. I’ve always been weak for it! It conveys a steadiness and solidity that draws me in, calming and soothing the various frays and rents that life produces. Understandable perhaps, having withstood the gales and roar of the Atlantic ocean for over 140 years.


I often day dream about and try research the people that worked in these buildings, wonder what a day was made up of, how it must have felt during storm surges and imagine the vibrations of winter storms. To me it feels cosy, but I’m sure I’m overromanticising it! This is long-standing favourite print of mine, as it always both comforts and energizes. I hope this image shines a bright light for you too.


Fine art, gicleé print. Printed on 200gsm Hahnemühle photo matte paper, using archival inks. Open Edition.

This image was shot on a 70 year old Zeiss Ikonta folding camera, pictured, which uses medium format film, and is one of my favourite cameras. Film rolls are processed to negatives in a professional film lab. I then carefully scan the negatives in a high-resolution film scanner to produce a digital image, which is then printed to fine art standard. Every photo is professionally printed on Hahnemühle photo matte paper by a local fine art print studio, and has a small white border (approx 1-2cm depending on print size) for easy framing. The result is a rich, velvety and luxurious print, using archival inks for long life and lasting enjoyment.
