I have being trying, unsuccessfully it would seem, to move away from photographing the homeless, there are so many now in Dublin, I hate the idea that it is easy fodder for the lens .. it must be much more ... but sometimes I still get visually drawn to them like a magnet, such as last night, where I went to photograph friday nights Christmas goings ons at Dublin's luxurious Shelbourne Hotel. But once again the visual force for me was the desparation of this young man. Tears in his eyes , tee shirt in the bitter cold and rain , the story was harrowing ...
"Help me if you can, I'm feeling down
And I do appreciate you being 'round.
Help me get my feet back on the ground,
Won't you please, please help me?"
