We went to Italy.
Photo Walk Cork City
On Friday afternoons I meet with some pretty interesting people to talk about photography and eat cake. A few weeks ago Rudy Ramos suggested a photo walk, we went and these are some of my images.
In August we took a family weekend trip to Connemara. I worried briefly about what to make images of, feeling the pressure of Ireland’s breathtaking landscape tradition I copped out completely and went with this project.
Each time a scene caught my attention and made me raise the camera I arranged my frame only to turn around 180°, compose and make an image with whatever happened to be before me.
Here is some of what I found.

“We almost always live outside ourselves, and life itself is a continual dispersion. But it’s towards ourselves that we tend, as towards a centre around which, like planets we trace absurd and distant Ellipses”.
Fernando Pessoa—The Book of Disquiet
"Photographer Mirjam Siefert was born in Southern Germany in 1978 and presently lives and works in Berlin. She is a founding member of Pavlov’s Dog Gallery and also of the photographic collective “neunplus”, both of which are located in Berlin. Her works have been exhibited internationally in Tokyo, Krakow, Paris, Moscow, Dublin, Denmark, Brussels and Istanbul just to name a few locations.”

Looking forward to seeing this piece of work in the quite beautiful setting of The Sirius Arts Centre.
