Art Description

Photography: Color, Digital and Photo on Paper.

The British 303 bullet was a stalwart of the British military for several decades from the beginning of the 20th Century. They were used by to liberate, save and oppress people across the world from Ireland to India as well as throughout WW2. These images show their deadly beautiful design and asks the audience to consider those who found themselves on both ends of these 'Empire' rounds.

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.
