Paddy and Me, 2018
Photograph, 40 x 60 cm
'Paddy and Me is an attempt to create a double portrait of my son Paddy and myself, which operates somewhere between a formal portrait and a snapshot. It is a personal exploration of our relationship and by extension aspects of ‘the father/son relationship’ in general.’
