The Doors of Dublin Lanes

Some photos I’ve taken in the back lanes of Dublin West.

There’s 40 doors in this collage, most of them garage doors. I don’t necessarily like or dislike graffiti, but I’m spellbound by painted out graffiti. Peeling wood and rusting metal I find impossible to dislike, and before all of that the painted squares and rectangles that are the doors and gates of Dublin’s lanes I’ve found intoxicating since I first played beside them.

    I like the idea here. I’ve done something not dissimilar here -without montage-:
    the impomptu wall (2nd last row - on the right) is particularly gloomy and reminiscent of a lot of areas in Dublin
