During the last year I lived in three cities across two continents. I went from documenting Aboriginal culture on west coast of Canada to walking on frozen lakes under the Aurora in Canada’s Great White North to moving all the way back home to the Emerald Isle. I shot over 25,000 photos in 2013 and am so thankful to have a record of the year it’s been. Looking forward to another year of exploration and creativity.

I was going through my archive today and found a body of work from 2010 which I completed as part of my graduate project for Dublin Institute of Technology. I’ve just entered the work into the Art Takes Miami contest. Below are the images I entered. If you like the images please vote for me in the competition: http://christineredmond.see.me/atm2012

Fionn Regan – Vicar Street 13 March 2010

Posted in Live music with tags , , , , on March 16, 2010 by christine redmond

Modest. Understated. Intriguing. Just few words to describe Fionn Regan. One word I try to avoid at all times – singer song writer. This word, thrown about as it is, is loaded with connotations of the dull kind. Fionn Regan is not another south-side guitar-wielding-mammy’s boy (anybody remember the Thrills?).

No. He’s not singing because he likes the sound of his own voice, he want’s to get famous or because he want’s to score (although with pants that tight I’m sure he’s not short of offers).

His recent gig, in Vicar Street (below) treated listeners to the tastes of his new album ‘Shadow of an Empire’. Delicous. The fast-paced, full sounding album sees more muscians to the stage and less of the folksy musings. The album is very different to his debut but the differnce is a welcome exciting change.

Little conversation from the man himself, but what else would you expect? The major disappointment of the night laid not with the music but with the followers. Why pay for a gig you don’t want to listen to? I relocated four times during his performance to escape the hysterical cackling of numerous groups of girls, loud and dull conversations drowning out the music and a girl clearly so off her face the finger picking must’ve resembled the sounds of 90’s dance judging by her moves. Despite the poor quality fans and the set backs of poor sound and a complete sound cut for at least one minute of his final encore, all in all, another captivating performance by Fionn Regan.
