Aoife Byrne

Aoife Byrne is a Student of Photography in DIT. She is currently working on a project focusing on artists, living, working and showcasing their work in Ireland. She is taking photographs of the artists with their work in studios, pubs or exhibitions, really anywhere the artists have their work. The photographs all are unique, as the artists choose the location and this makes all of shoots different. Lighting changes, the art changes and the person changes, this creates a different atmosphere though out the images. That is the reason she shoots portraits due to the spontaneity and capturing the one singular moment in time. A moment in time can never be recaptured as it is simply that a moment, it will never happen again in that exact way and should be treasured. It is not the photographs that are interesting it is the people that make the photographs happen. She has many other interests both in photography and many other fields.
