Photography

I love seeing how the world
looks through a lens.

 
 

 

Eggplant

'Chiezi' - or 'eggplant' - is what Chinese people say to get people to smile for their photos.

Eggplant captures something of, perhaps, the first generation of a new Chinese middle-class enjoying domestic tourism en masse and creating, for themselves, a new visual memory.

Taken over three weeks during China's peak holiday season in 2011, Eggplant is a portrait of a rapidly transforming China through an unapologetically tourist's eyes.

Eggplant was selected for exhibition as part of a group show at Photo Festival Ireland 2012.
