SO Fine Art Editions hosts a group show of contemporary photographers to coincide with PhotoIreland Festival 2019. ‘Capture’ brings together 29 works by 10 photographers: Enda Bowe, Patricio Cassinoni, Gregory Dunn, Diarmait Grogan, Joby Hickey, Joe Lee, Fionn McCann, Aisling McCoy, Hugh O’Conor, David Stephenson and Dominic Turner.
The exhibition features a suite of photographs from Enda Bowe’s recent project ‘This Thing I Want, I know Not What’ A collaboration with actor/writer Bryony Miller. The project is inspired by the character of Mick Kelly from the late Carson McCuller’s ‘The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter’. These images captures Bowe’s love of storytelling and the search for light and beauty in the ordinary.
Patricio Cassioni, born in Buenos Aires has exhibited in Berlin, Brussels, Buenos Aires and Dublin. These works are part of his ‘Fantastic Portaits’ series and deal with the human form and identity.
Gregory Dunn has been working on personal photographic and film projects for a number of years documenting various aspects of Ireland with a particular interest in the unconsidered.
Diarmait Grogan’s practice deals with the mysterious and the mundane. He combines every day moments with personal elements to create non-linear narratives.
Joby Hickey creates photographs using his own homemade cameras and film. In the surfacing and treatment of his images, Hickey’s work reflects an almost impressionistic paint-like quality.
Joe Lee graduated as a Fine Art Printmaker but since then he has worked predominantly as an independent film and video maker. He is currently working on a digital film archival project with the Irish Museum of Modern Art.
Fionn McCann’s academic background in Archeology has led him to his photographic practice which concentrates on the relationship between the built environment and surrounding landscape.
Aisling McCoy’s works are as part of her project ‘The Radiant City’ which examines the concept of Utopia via Le Corbusiers Unite d’Habition in Marseille. Sixty years later, McCoy captured these images which highlight the role of both architecture and photography in creating the ideal.

David Stephenson is an award winning Irish filmmaker and photographer and he has been commissioned by State Agencies to photograph in many African countries and El Salvador.
