Duality

24 October - 24 November 2012

Enda Cavanagh's Duality is based on a series of large panoramic images of swimming areas and baths along the Dublin coast.

 

While living in Berlin, Enda Cavanagh developed a fascination for aging man made structures that feature in urban and rural landscapes. The series of images in this exhibition celebrates the unorthodox beauty of such subjects.

 

These structures are displayed as evolving and almost living entities with their own personalities, bridging the past and present. Enda Cavanagh illustrates how these structures may be an intrinsic part of the Irish landscape, yet in time become consumed by their surroundings.

 

Duality consists of images in a large panoramic format, shot using a Hasselblad H3D39 digital Back on a Cambo View Camera. Much influenced by the cinema, Cavanagh uses the panoramic format to add epic character and clarity to this series, resulting in wonderfully balanced images that draw the viewer into the scene.

 

Enda Cavanagh is an award winning Irish architectural and fine art landscape photographer. He is an associate member of the Irish Professional Photographer's Association. In 2011 he became the first photographer in Europe to receive a Qualified European Photographer by the Federation of European Photographers in the category of fine art landscape. 

 

He has exhibited at the Centre for Photographic Art in Carmel California, the IEPA Photography exhibition in Japan, and the Royal Hibernian Academy Gallery in Dublin.

 

Having received best single image award in the landscape category in the 2010 IPPA/RSA Photographer of the year awards, Cavanagh was also awarded architectural photographer of the year in 2011. He won best single image award in the pictorial category in the 2012 IPPA awards and was a finalist in the 2010 FEP European Fine Art Photograph of the Year Awards.
