This prints is a part of ‘Grace Notes’.
"I began making photographs in earnest upon moving to the Middle East, and laid the foundations of my current working practice of meditative walking, visually interpreting non-visual cultural material, lateral thinking and drawing on the vocal traditions of my home country - Ireland - as a way of exploring the liminal space between geographic location and respectful cultural enquiry. These photographs are of the incidental visual phrases or ‘grace notes’ I encounter on my many walks through city neighbourhoods that give a sense of how those ‘in between’ spaces speak as themselves in images." Eddie Ryan
“But as a photographer, I’m strictly a listener. I listen to stories told to me not by people, but by landscapes and places, by houses and streets.” Wim Wenders
