King of the travellers / Bambi / Pecha Kucha




so since i last put some news up here lots has been happening but here are the 3 stand outs for me as of late. i went to dundalk to photograph the ex bare-knuckle king of the travelers, a lovely fella by the name of dan rooney for an article still very much in the works but with the potential to be a cracker. i was brought along by my old mongrel pal and mayo-man of the year, eoin butler. more details of that day available here: http://www.eoinbutler.com/home/i-went-out-walking/

i also decided i am doing an exhibition in early november consisting of over 14 years of my photography about skateboarding in ireland and whilst up in my folks attic digging out old negs i found this bambi 7 inch. bambi were an amazing dublin punk band who would play in the old pipeline 2 skatepark during parties there. i was only a young gun at the time but i can still remember skating around the park to only the light from a strobe light as they played a sex pistols cover in the hole in the wall.

also ive been asked to present a pecha kucha thing in the sugar club soon also. its this thing where you have 20 seconds to talk about 20 slides so basically its just over 6 and a half minutes of sheer panic and randomness... come along if you are free. they are always really insightful and inspiring.
