This project is a subtle, sometimes surprising, and always engaging exploration of the multiform presence of Americans and American culture in Ireland. Portraits are at the heart of the series, from the familiar and famous like Senator Edward Kennedy to the unexpected, such as the striking image of two Choctaw Indians in the wilds of Mayo. Other images capture a fascinating range of reflections and refractions of America in the landscape, buildings, objects, and icons of the country. Taken together, the photographs convey an artist's wonderfully human rendering of a crucially important but too often misrepresented aspect of Irish life.
