Canton House

Dublin, Ireland, late 2001-early 2002: While recently scanning some old negatives I came across these images.

A week after moving […]

Smithfield

Dublin, Ireland, 2004: Smithfield horse market is held on the first sunday of every month. At approximately 400 years old, it is one of the longest (and most controversial) horse fairs in the world… The Smithfield area was given a facelift in the late 1990’s to accomodate the denizens of Ireland’s new found economic wealth.
