'We Will Not Sit Down And Be Quiet' Portrait Series

I had the honor of capturing powerful portraits for the "Advocacy through the Arts" project, which gave a voice to advocates who have spent their lives in Ireland's institutionalized disability care sector. Through my work, I aimed to portray the strength, resilience, and humanity of these individuals as they stood shoulder to shoulder, claiming their rights and demanding respect. 

The portraits, along with a film installation, were exhibited at the historic Pearse Museum and followed with further exhibitions at the Rua Red Gallery. It was a privilege to be part of this impactful project that challenged societal biases and advocated for the full inclusion and dignity of people with disabilities.
