Discover Dublin In The AM Here
Dublin A.M. is a time-based photographic and video project by photographer Veronica Vierin that features 366 pictures taken on my way to work, between 2014 and 2016. The images focus on the cityscapes and on the inherent paradoxes of the urban condition; from empty streets, buildings, and hidden abandoned spaces to isolated human figures, juxtaposed with the breathtaking beauty of the city’s sunrises. Screening from tomorrow, Sunday 12th, to Tuesday 14th at Meeting House Square. See more info and times here.
