Don Sheehan’s exhibition Urbis Modo

Broadstone Studios sent me an invitation to see Don Sheehan’s photographic exhibition Urbis Modo. It’s a collection of photos taken at night in Dublin between 1998 and 2008. Many of the images of people in various states of intoxication but they struck a chord with me because they also depict people nestling into the inhospitable surfaces of the urban space. In stupor and dereliction, people find a niche and make the city adapt to their overwhelming need to switch off and pass out.

There’s a link to the online gallery below.
