Jason Lowe

This project explores Jason Lowe’s relationship with an area on the west coast of Connemara. Revisiting the landscape on his own highlighted the often detritus-laden topographies that were always present but never truly seen when in the in the company of others.

The use of infrared film and the resulting post-apocalyptic aesthic reflects the change in what Lowe saw on childhood visits to the area and what is seen and felt fifteen years on from that time of innocence.
