Award winning Irish photographer Linda Brownlee is well known for her documentary approach to portraiture and fashion. Linda’s inquisitive nature leads her to create personal and editorial bodies of work that focus on the real and intimate nature of people and their relationship to the environments they inhabit.
In 2019, we had the great pleasure of hosting Linda’s first solo show in our gallery, titled ‘Idle Topography’. Taking her transitions between North Dublin’s suburbs and inner city as the subject matter for this ongoing body of work, Brownlee highlights the aesthetic promise in the everyday. Her work delicately explores the intricate energy of the people and places onto which she stumbles. Gently unraveling visual spaces into select abstracted images, she attempts to organise and disorganise her surroundings.
