Dummy That Image


Dummy That Image took place in the Gallery of Photography, Dublin. Aimed at photographers and artists who had previously developed their work into book form but who wished to push the project forward, the RTI team lead participants down a path of rethinking and rediscovery. Areas such as pacing and sequencing, design and text, paper and binding were revisited with a renewed awareness of each of their intrinsic roles. A main focus of this workshop was the relationship between the concept of the project and the tangible object of the book, and how the experience of the reader might be guided by decisions made during the bookmaking process. All details were considered. This intensive two days of thinking, discussing and making culminated in the realisation of four printed and hand-bound dummy photobooks.

She Comes in Colours

In the summer of 2012 I met Isadora. She was traveling in Europe. We had a short romance.
