Artist’s statement: “Coastline Stories’ has been a year-long exploration of the coastal towns and their surroundings in County Waterford. The project has given me an entry point into the lives and landscapes that border the sea.
I have met with extraordinary people and I have spent time walking on wild, winter beaches; documenting, interacting and absorbing the changes that occur here annually, from September to May, in the off-season.
Coastline Stories (see here the preview for the book which may be purchased).
