'Dying is a very important part of our being alive and living'

More recently, I had the privilege of photographing a very vivacious lady (for whom my colleagues and I cared for), along with her endearing family at the ‘End of her Life’. Personally, I have had a very strong belief for many years now, that ‘dying is a very important part of our being alive and living’. I also truly believe in capturing every raw mixed emotion that we experience, so that we can reflect on this in time as we grieve and adapt our living and these memories become a part of us.

On this occasion, the idea of undertaking this photography came as a result of the Covid pandemic where some family members were unable to travel home. We wished to ‘put together’ some of the pieces of the jigsaw of their Mum’s living and dying. This lady’s family also felt; ‘Why not create photos and memories for every stage of life including the end, as naturally as we would include the beginning of life with birth’.  

And so the story began, as we naturally chatted, reminisced and celebrated life with tea and cake and captured those very precious moments.  

'Imagine' at Hambly & Hambly Gallery

I am honored and delighted to be part of an artist group called 'Imagine' at Hambly & Hambly Gallery, Enniskillen, Co. Fermanagh.

This creative online initiative arose in our unusual times of the Covid Pandemic and served as a source of sharing dreams, ideas, visions and supporting one another through the physical isolation in real solidarity. 

Now, all artists involved in this united community 'Imagine' are embracing another opportunity to be part of an even greater event on 1st August 2020 which will feature the launch of 'Imagine's virtual exhibition complemented by the exhibition in the physical gallery space of Hambly & Hambly. 

Can't wait to drop off my two selected art pieces of fine art nude and abstract photography for physical viewing.
