In the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day, we set out on a hunt for contemporary Irish artists. And we found inspiration in the work of Dublin-based photographer Miriam O’Connor.
Her collection “Attention Seekers” focuses on “the curious details that make up the visual world we are passing through… the images represent, above all, a deep curiosity around looking and seeing, and a preoccupation with the impression that these scenes in some way return the gaze.”
Miriam’s photos encourage us to contemplate the absurdity of mundane objects, find humor in the everyday, and linger on the details. Take a moment to enjoy her point of view.
