Over the past six years, Eamonn Doyle has emerged into the photographic world with an internationally-acclaimed body of work that has come to be known as his “Dublin trilogy” — i, ON and End. — which he then followed with K, a series he photographed in the west of Ireland and western Spain.
Born in Dublin in 1969, Eamonn studied painting and then photography at college (1987–1991), after which he set off travelling around the globe pursuing thoughts on being a “world photographer”. He soon returned to Ireland and in 1994 put down his camera and launched D1 Recordings. Eamonn spent the next twenty years embedded in music: publishing, collaborating, recording, running festivals and travelling the world.
Around 2011, on the streets just outside his inner-city Dublin front door, Eamonn began to take photographs again. His life-long passion for music, for literature (particularly Samuel Beckett) and the contemporary flux of cultural developments and social politics, all seem to combine and resonate on the streets of Dublin through his photographs.
