The Faces Project


I dropped a couple of hints in earlier posts, but our latest escapade, code named “The Faces Project”, is currently ongoing. We were at Megadeath last week, and at Kenny Rogers last night, stopping fans for a quick portrait on their way in. Watch out for us at some more gigs (the friendly man from Aitken promotions will be delighted to see us again, no doubt) and around town during the Midsummer festival.

With The Faces Project we want to capture the spirit of Cork during the summer festival season by photographing the people we meet on the street. In this time where digital cameras are everywhere & people are used to being photographed constantly, film photography demands a different response from both the subject and photographer. It has a slower, more purposeful pace and requires people to take a few minutes out of their day to pause for the camera and interact with the photographer. We hope you enjoy the experience.

Projects like The Faces Project have been undertaken in other cities throughout the world: London, Barcelona, Edinburgh and New York.  Now it’s Cork’s turn!

  1. Best of luck with this. From Megadeth to Madness, the Marquee has absolutely no musical theme holding it together which means plenty of diversity of faces to make this interesting. Looking forward to the results!
