Joby Hickey is an Irish photographer and painter, and the son of renowned artist Patrick Hickey. He graduated from the Dun Laoghaire School of Art & Design, Dublin in 1994. Beginning (and continuing) as a painter, then training in film, Joby eventually developed a very personal and recognisable style of boundary-crossing-photography. A master of form and colour, he strives for sophistication through simplicity, and he plays with time. Joby is not merely a maker of art, he makes his own film and cameras with which to create his art. His often monochromatic works have a cinematic quality which appears to float between the blurred present, the familiar recent and the almost-forgotten.
