Fallout is a series of photographs that consider the modern Irish landscape; a landscape where empty buildings stand like ancient ruins, reminders of another time in history. Appearing like portals to a different world, they quietly haunt the periphery of towns and cities, anonymous, the same, in a limbo of dream and reality…
