William T Vollman, the Vikings, Greenland and Me

Last week, I had coffee with Belgian journalist, Camille Goret, at his office in central Brussels. So central is Camille’s office, it’s practically in the same building, the city’s Gare de Central.

Julie Grahame, editor of aCurator Magazine writes: If you’re lucky enough to be in Dublin between now and September 29th, it looks as if you can’t miss Dave Walsh’s exhibition of polar photographs. As much as I love the back-lit screen, it seems redundant to say these must look spectacular in-person. Thanks, Julie!

Masters of the Irish Harp

Masters of the Irish Harp

A recent addition to Dublin’s low-rise skyline and spanning the Irish capital’s River Liffey, the harp-like silhouette of Santiago Caletrava’s Samuel Beckett Bridge is a technical marvel bordering in Celtic Kitsch. These qualities attracted me and my camera – even to the point of doing long picture exposures on cold snowy nights. It’s paid off, […]
