the beginning of the end (i)

I have so much on my plate right now, college is already incredibly stressful and I have a lot of things to balance. Having said that, I really want to revive this blog, and use it as a personal record of my final year in IADT. I'm going to attempt to make weekly posts to share what I'm working on or maybe even just some cool stuff that I've seen, whatever's up. So to kick that off, here's some ancient scans from some rolls of 35mm I only recently got round to processing.

other worlds

Back to college today, the first day of my last year. I always feel really creative and excited after the initial briefings, mind swelling with ideas, dying to get going. Couldn't sit still this evening and wanted to play around a little as a break from thesis reading. 

These photos are from a short break to Longford last month with my boyfriend Conor. We had such a nice not-a-holiday holiday! These were the last things on my camera though, which means I really do need to start shooting more.

The crop I can claim no credit for, an artist I admire a lot and whom I follow on instagram recently posted a picture of some darkroom stuff she was working on which was printed like this. You can view her website here
I just really liked how it made these little boring landscapes look like little planets, like other worlds, which, to be honest, is how I felt about our little trip away. It was another world, so quiet and nothing like the city. Exactly what I needed at the time. 

Keeping everything crossed I have new work up soon. Trying my hardest to be productive, I swear.

july 28th-31st

I'll be the first to say that this whole thing was a failed success. Almost immediately after I started I wished I hadn't bothered. Starting to feel a bit crappy again, which I do think is pretty well reflected in the imagery I've produced - especially over the last week - two weeks.

Glad this month is over. Hoping August will be better and I'll start to enjoy taking photographs again. Fingers crossed.
