About The Artwork

Archival print onto Hahnemuhle fine art Photographic paper. Signed and numbered from a limited edition of 50. Being a foreigner in a new city, I started documenting the city's dwellers whilst they themselves observed their own city. According to the law in Spain, “the taking, reproducing or publishing of the image of a person captured by photography means in places or moments of private life or outside these” is considered to be an “illegal intromission in private life”. As I got to know the city's streets, buildings and its people to a greater degree, I began to feel more at home and more at one with the city. As the number of photos of my subjects grew, so did my love for my new city. The narrow cobbled streets, the long wide avenues and public plazas all became my playground, the buildings with their balconies of various architectural styles became my canvas and the people who occupied them, became my subjects. As a result of adhering to the Spanish law, what started off as being an observation of the city's dwellers, my subjects began to take on a greater and more personal role. They started to truly reflect my life in this new city, these were no longer portraits of a city, but had now became portraits of a new resident, Myself ! In order to protect the identity of those photographed, all faces have been replaced with those of my own self portraits.

Louise O’Gorman is a photographer from Ireland. Taking photographs is her form of escapism. The camera allows her to enter another world and create images that form connections with her feelings and experiences. Since graduating with an honours degree in photography over 25 years ago, she has had the privilege of living and working as a photographer in various capacities, across different countries. These experiences have enriched her perspective and allowed her to immerse herself in various cultures while documenting diverse stories and lifestyles through her lens. Her personal practice draws on these experiences. Through her photography she captures the evolving essence of people and places, the transitory nature of emotions and how it feels to be alive. Her images celebrate both life's emotional and physical journeys. Using herself as the subject, she places her physical presence in the frame to tell stories of a person, a place, an experience or an emotion. Rather than being self portraits as such, she uses her body in a more all encompassing symbolic approach to engage the viewer. She has exhibited her work in individual and group shows internationally. Her photographs have have been featured on several book covers, appeared in blogs, magazines and newspapers and form part of private collections.
