Ghost House
Photography and Video project, 2007 - ongoing
The Ghost House series, a work in progress, was shot at several abandoned houses in Kerry and Connemara, Ireland, whose last occupants probablyleft 10 to 30 years ago. Traces of their lives and aspirations, and of the disillusions and hardships that made them leave their homeland, remained in the form of scattered personal belongings. These abandoned houses are the only museums to document the social changes that took place in Ireland during the last 30 years, as the country itself tends to sacrifice the memory of its tumultuous past for the Cult of “Progress” and “Dynamism”.
