Intruders

By Donal Moloney

description

'Intruders' is a fine art photographic Exhibition to be held at Filmbase, Temple Bar, 11th - 21st April.

'Commando Photography' might be the best way to describe the technique I used in creating these images. I believe this personal fine art’s project to be very unique, photographically stunning and the most fun I've had since my teens.

I have been a professional photographer for 25 years and my daily work usually involves shooting for ad agencies www.donalmoloney.com

This is my first ever solo exhibition ('and about time' some have said). I have spent 6k of my own cash producing these shots and now I need your support please. €7.7k in funding is required to produce the show. €4.5k of this will be for high end prints and framing, €1.2k for the location and €2k will be needed for promotional material, invites, the opening evening and staffing the event. I am in the process of securing a well known celebrity to open the show.

I chose to exhibit at Filmbase because it has a constant flow of people and the exhibits are constantly exposed to the passing public in a very busy area of the city.

So why is this exhibition unique?

Well, it combines many elements, architecture, decay, danger and the nude. I have always had a fascination with Urbex, the exploration of old abandoned buildings, architectural decay, or not usually seen components of the man-made environment. Ireland and Dublin in particular has many such locations, some more famous than others.

I spent almost 4 months investigating these sometimes dangerous and often unwelcome places. However, it was their interiors that fascinated me most. What I found with my final selected locations was a really strange beauty in their decay and architectural wonder. Some of the locations are well known to Dubliners - but have never been seen on the ‘inside’ as it were. That will now change

Having done all my preparation work, I still felt I could add another interesting dimension to the composition of each shot – ‘The Nude’.

The nude has been photographed in every possible landscape and studio since the art of photography was discovered. But, I’m not aware of my chosen combination ever being photographed like this, particularly in Ireland. The result leaves the viewer not sure whether they are more impressed by the intriguingly powerfully impressive beauty of the location or the elegant beauty of the women. All these ladies were incredibly brave and I am eternally grateful to them.

Please feel free to contact me, details on my website below, for any further information or to have a sneak preview of these amazing images.

It's now or never for all those who said they'd pledge. I need a miracle but I've great faith in people. Spread the word!

Help! lol

Well, its gone very slow and I'm beginning to panic. I'm hoping that anyone half considering a donation will do so sooner rather than later and it may have a snowball effect. I’ve just had my Intruders posters delivered and considering the limitations of mass printing, they look pretty good. One of the reasons I chose these two images was that they are a little less provocative than some of the others and more likely to be posted in public. It should still be interesting trying to find places brave enough to put them up. A big thankyou to my good friend John Flynn who designed them. On the positive side, I’ve done a radio interview with Dublin City FM on their arts show and Alison O’ Riordan wrote a very nice piece about the project in last weeks Sunday Independent http://www.independent.ie/lifestyle/books-arts/strippeddown-shots-of-the-urban-world-29059254.html Some might be interested to see a video I made during my final recce for this project. http://vimeo.com/58841234 Others might be interested in having a look at another project I'm working on call 'Chair'. www.facebook.com/storyofchair Fingers and toes crossed for the next 10 days. Btw, if anyone would like to hear me chat about these projects, I'm giving a talk at the Dublin Camera Club, Camden St, next Tuesday 5th March around 8pm
