This body of work began in the late 90's when Lorraine Tuck started to photograph areas along the former Connemara railway line. After living abroad for some time Lorraine returned home and resumed making photographs along the old line.
The Whistle Blowing is deeply rooted in childhood memories and the tradition of storytelling, and a concern and consideration for her heritage and upbringing that is unique to the people of Connemara.
This body of work honours the story of the railway line, piecing together childhood memories through the photographic image. The subjective nature of the work makes this a personal testimony to the line and the land.
