Art Description

Photography: Color, Digital and Photo on Paper.

This piece subverts 762mm belted ammunition casings and challenges the viewer to consider the nature of their beauty.

Cathal Carey began photography aged 10 and was immediately overwhelmed by the analogue photographic process. His addiction to black and white photography has evolved into the digital age, displayed by a subdued tonal range. He literally crafts his light by hand and is a master of studio photography. His personal work subverts the very nature of objects as he transforms them in his dark and dangerous world.

The images created display a sensual and seductive aesthetic while appealing to the retinal touch. His subject matter plays with the erotic, the lethal and damnation on his dark dramatic stage in the studio. His major influences include Caravaggio, Baroque, Brassai and film noir.
