Mark Duffy, an Irish photographer, has a number of interesting projects. Though only 27, he has a decade of taking photographs under his belt. After studying photography at the Dun Laoghaire Institute of art and design in Dublin, Mark moved to London and has been working on various long term projects, while also taking on commercial work. He recently was published in the British Journal of Photography and has exhibited in group shows in London and Dublin.
I am featuring two series, Sylvia and Drive-In Bingo.
From the Sylvia series:
“Sylvia lives alone in her high-rise flat of 15 years. She sits smoking cigarettes, watching tv and listening to her half tuned radio at the same time. “The place was a real shit-hole before I moved in” she tells me repeatedly. Her husband failed to tell her the he was already married and her children have yet to visit her. She’s still waiting to find out if she is going to be rehoused to make way for the London 2012 Olympics.”
