After photographing a wedding in Ravello, Italy, with some really bulky and expensive cameras, Gerry traveled light to the Electric Picnic – with his Canon point and shoot. Not a bad result, shooting for fun on a weekend off. We convinced him to share some of his images with the VULGOverse….
With Attention Seekers published in countries as far-a-field as Australia and the US, and a New York pundit describing O’Connor as ‘my latest crush’, the horizon and future seem rosy for this Bjork-like pixie of the photographic world.
Photographer Sean Hillen chats about his eerie and insightful exhibition “Ghost Shops”, running on the top floor of “Base Camp” on Dublin’s Middle Abbey Street until Sunday, August 13th, at 5pm. VULGO says, climb those stairs to Base Camp summit, and take in the view.
Kerr’s young subjects stare candidly, smiling into the lens. He has found a way of celebrating the children at play, families bound together, a child absorbed by something outside the frame, her hat a confection of colour deeply contrasted with her skin in ‘Girl in the Pink Hat’ (Zambia 2011).
These 25 talented Mexican photographers share the intimate exposure of their dreams, ideas, and worlds where there are no limits, when a camera is in your hands and you have your story to tell.
Live music photography is now, to all intents and purposes, a distinct genre of photography, with its own sets of codes and conventions, and its practitioners with their own way of working.

Sitting in a chair, you put yourself at ease as you are connecting with something solid.

Having been influenced by successful European publications, fashion photographer Agata Stoinska was keen to have an outlet for her personal and project based works. Like many professional photographers, Agata struggled to find such an outlet. She felt that a magazine was the most effective way for photographers to share and celebrate contemporary work.

Photography Friday n.5 – David Monahan started in March 2010 a very interesting project about people ‘Leaving Dublin’. The purpose was to document the personal stories behind otherwise mere statistical figures. He explains in this post the reasons behind the idea, and talks about some the over 40 people he has encounter so far. These are his words.
With descriptions like ‘self-funded’, ‘self-established’, and many other ‘selfs’, we can only start to describe what constitutes a common universe of experience for many independent spaces, galleries and studios. A cosmology that only holds tight thanks to the endless hours of unpaid work placed in them. Such is the case of the Severed Head gallery, 16 Lower Mount Street, Dublin 2. Managed by Ronan McCall, and a mere year old, it is a fine addition to the cultural landscape in Dublin.
