As of the 13th of September I will be out of the country until January 23rd 2018. For the following months I will be working in Tanzania as the expedition photographer for Raleigh International. Established in 1984, Raleigh is a sustainable development charity that works in remote, rural areas to improve access to safe water and sanitation, build community resilience, to sustainably manage natural resources and to protect vulnerable environments.

For the coming months communication may be limited but please contact me via my everyday email: paulwalsh1977@yahoo.com

You can follow my journey on the Raleigh International blog or via my Facebook and Instagram pages found on my website. See you in 2018….

VILNIUS REVISITED

Paul-Walsh-Bokstas25-17

In 2015 the MAP6 photography collective made a piece of work about the country that lies at the geographical heart of the European Union, Lithuania. Over 6 days 6 photographers set out to explore its transformation from communism to capitalism, and how it was coping with its new found Eurozone identity. For the Lithuanian Project, I worked on the series Bokštas 25 (Tower 25) where I walked around the capitals tallest building. As I walked I photographed those I met and made landscapes where I would somehow include the tower within the frame. The work was eventually exhibited in a number of locations and was made into a self published book. After recently revisiting the work however, I have found some images that never made it into the final edit, which I am sharing here.

MAP6 BACK IN MK

The MAP6 collective are pleased to announce that we will have another opportunity to exhibit the MK Project in Milton Keynes. Featuring my series Autopia, the show will run between Nov 1 – 30 and will be held at the MK Library. More details to follow soon. In the meantime MAP6 will be meeting in September to discuss our next project, exciting times for the collective.

AUTOPIA ONLINE

Earlier this year, I visited Milton Keynes with 7 other photographers from the MAP6 collective. Over 72 hours we made the Milton Keynes project, which will be exhibited for a second time in Milton Keynes soon. The work I made was called Autopia, and its now live on my website here.

MK OPENING NIGHT

MKGallery

Collaboration is at the the heart of the MAP6 collective, and we are constantly trying to find ways in which we can further this practice. For the show at the MK Gallery, we decided to edit and exhibit the work as a whole, rather than as individual projects. It was interesting to see how images made by 8 individual photographers worked together, printed and sized differently. We hope to push this further with coming projects, as well as collaborate with other photographers, designers and curators.

We had a brilliant time at the opening night of the Milton Keynes Project. The MK Gallery was packed and everybody seemed fascinated with the work. Thank you to everybody that came to see the work, which will be on show for a further 5 weeks.
