This is interesting. You have taken a well documented subject, transformed and evolved from a contemporary perspective into something that moves beyond the story, beyond the sadness of neglect. It has become almost celebratory of what it has become in its' own right. Living in rural Ireland and passing decayed habitations too often to be comfortable, this is a fresh view that I can greatly appreciate. Well Done and thank you. Debbie Hainbach
Thanks Debbie. I like your idea of celebrating these spaces. Kind regards. Sarah
The dentures! There's so much life still in there. I adore your photography, brilliant work.
Thanks. I have never before seen anything as strange as the dentures, and I dont' think I will again.
I came across similar stuff helping a friend clear out a little farm house in Wicklow several years ago. The last occupant, a retired farmer, had died a six months previous and had lived there for many years. I opened a dresser drawer one day to find a false leg in it! He also had a box room crammed with hundreds of branches with which he made fine walking sticks, I kept one that looked almost finished and it still stands in my hall. I'll never forget that experience, it was sad, funny and fascinating all in one.
...and more beautiful images BTW, thank you for sharing.
Many thanks for sharing. So many little 'museums' all over the country.
Another wonderful place.
