The Dublin portfolios consist of many of the well-known landmarks of Dublin city and evoke a unique historical feel in a collection of photographs that does justice to a capital city steeped in cultural significance.
The Dublin photography portfolios by Patrick Donald Photography present a lovely cross section of images taken in a photojournalist and landscape photography style. This approach is very much part of the old school ethos that is synonymise with the majority of my works. “A true and honest approach to picture making has never let me down, as I see this as being the true test of a fine art photographer…. to make the everyday interesting, and if not at the very least a document of our times, whereby they may have some relevance to how life was lived during an unusual time of change. Which is certainly what I notice has been of particular note over the last few decades.
In the heart of the city one of Dublin’s main attractions, Trinity College Dublin can be found and a trip to Dublin is not complete without a walk through the grounds of this picturesque college. Parliament Square is approached through the Front Arch where you are greeted with the Camponile framed in the arch placed boldly in the centre amongst a formal garden and beautiful architecture at each side.
Dublin has developed hugely over the past number of years particularly along the quays towards Dublin Bay! But also in the city centre areas like Temple Bar have become tourist attractions that have changed the feel of the city. Dublin Pubs have largely remained for the most part as they have been for a long time as the owners recognised that the history and original traditional look and feel is what people love to be surrounded by when socialising in Dublin. That sense of history and nostalgia of the past is what the photographs should convey, leaving the viewer very much a part of this unusual time of change and in Dublin’s case how it works in harmony together.
