Below the Surface

A series of portraits of people working in areas such as cleaning, refuse-collection, repair and maintenance for Dublin City Council.
Portraits are usually only commissioned of those in high-ranking positions or of people who have achieved something of historical, political or cultural significance. This body of work attempted to acknowledge the efforts and commitment of the vast body of other workers whose jobs are all crucial to keep the city running and without whom the whole organism of the city would not function.
