No time to actually write something about this so I’m just going to throw the photograph up here. This was taken at a Fringe Festival production, When Irish Hearts Are Praying, written by Aoife Crehan. I took photographs at the dress rehearsal for the show, which clearly is the way to go with theatre in future. This is a photograph of one of the acts of the play, and it is an exposure of about 10 minutes or so. I am really interested in doing more theatre stuff in the future, so anyone reading this with good contacts for me …. hook me up!

As I mentioned in the last post I was in Collins Barracks the other night photographing the Macnas show, On The Edge Of Things Is A Fierce Beauty, which closed off this year’s Absolut Fringe festival.

She may be suffering a mental breakdown; she may be the victim of a sadistic husband and a ruthless medical establishment; she may be suffering from post-natal depression; she may even be a ghost.

Last week I got to try out something new with this project. I had been thinking of trying to expand out the long exposure photography idea into other sorts of public gatherings or events apart from gigs, and one of the ideas that occurred to me was theatre. I heard that Blow photo magazine were looking for photographers to take shots at the Absolut Fringe festival so I suggested trying out some of my long exposure photography at a few of the shows.
