Fear Of The Dark

In nocturnal images made in one town in Northern Ireland, investigates the current disputed transition from the traditional warm-coloured sodium vapour lamps to the new “whiter” LED lamps. In seeking out the spots where the old light meets the new, I found quiet corners that spoke to the overall tension felt in that small community. Although in the context of world news, this story might seem futile. The idea that changes made to our own personal space and communities no matter how small can have an impact on our own psychological and sociological wellbeing.
