This image is from an ongoing series, Connemara. Until I was eleven I lived in a remote part of western Ireland called Connemara, in County Galway. I spent my days wandering endless farmlands and rolling hills. My backyard was the edge of Lough Corrib, Ireland’s largest inland lake. My sons, living in inner city Melbourne, have a very different experience – their playground is concrete and asphalt. The images are based on photographs and memories of my own childhood, and the series documents my children’s everyday experiences playing amongst the factories and warehouses that are their backyard.
