I’m one of these people that likes to continuously complain about the city I live in. Nothing works, it rains all the time, the fruit is expensive, and my friends get taken advantage of at their various jobs… I could go on.
However, in the past year, a ray of sunshine has shone through these dreary Dublin days in the shape of Irish chemist, Bryan Hogan’s photography. Shooting only using his film Nikon, and somehow capturing Dublin as a sundrenched seaside suburban haven, Bryan instills in even the coldest soul, the warmth of his home town.
He’s shot many other places in Ireland and around the world, and he’s currently in Germany researching, in his own words, 'biomimetic enzyme-inspired organometallic complex synthesis,' so expect many captured moments between lab work.
Bryan’s Dublin photography never ceases to amaze me, simply because of his ability to make places that I know inside-out and have grown up in look so magically new. Even better, Bryan’s commentary to his photos manage to tear away any artistic bullshitting. I guess that’s why he’s a scientist.
