Eoin O’Conaill received the Gallery of Photography’s Artist Award for his project Common Place. The work formed the basis of his first major solo exhibition and is a subtle exploration of Ireland during the recent period of cultural and economic change. Its atmospheric images are of fractured landscapes of contemporary life on the hinterlands of Irish cities and towns. The photographs are mainly taken at transitional hours of the day, early morning or evening time, again exploring the liminal and the in-between.
