  1. St. Patrick’s Campus, DCU by Andy Devane - part 3

    20 Jul 2022

    This is the third and final blog entry presenting photographs of St Patrick’s Campus, DCU.  Our Lady Seat of Wisdom Chapel, designed in 1964 - probably the most recognisable building in the area. Beautiful floating structure with stunning details and impressive stained glass windows.  I highly recommend checking ‘More than…


  2. St. Patrick’s Campus, DCU by Andy Devane - part 2

    15 Jul 2022

    St Patrick’s Campus (DCU) is unique on so many levels. Architecture and its scale are very human-friendly. Also, everything is kept in beautiful condition. Well done to anyone who is responsible for that.  In this photo presentation, we are moving to students’ residences, just beside office buildings which you can…


  3. St. Patrick’s Campus, DCU by Andy Devane - part 1

    13 Jul 2022

    After a really busy few weeks, I am slowly getting back online (at least for now) presenting some photographs I was working on lately for both - my commercial and also a personal portfolio.  I will start here with my personal collection, with photographs that complement the cycle of works…


  4. St. Aengus’ Church in Burt

    24 May 2022

    My journey came to an end so this is the last post regarding Liam McCormick and his Donegal Churches. I left a space and the final presentation for probably the most recognisable building out of all seven. St Aengus’ Church in Burt, 1964-67   4x5 Pinhole camera with Ilford FP4+ exposed…


  5. Star of the Sea Church in Desertegney

    19 May 2022

    I am slowly approaching the end of my ‘pilgrimage’ and thus the presentation of its fruits - photography.  There are two more churches to visit - in my humble opinion the most interesting of the five I have seen this short rainy weekend. These also, belong to a small group…


  6. St. Patrick’s Church in Murlog

    14 May 2022

    My journey continues. Fortunately, it has stopped raining. It’s still cloudy, but the day looks good My next stop is Murlog and McCormick’s second oldest church after Milford. Built between 1962-64 and altered in 1994, truly large scale, built on a polygonal cruciform plan St. Patrick’s Church.  Impressive structure as…


  7. St. Peter’s Church in Milford

    10 May 2022

    It started to rain again when I was still in front of Donoughmore Presbyterian Church in Liscooley. I quickly run to the car and slowly moved towards Milford - My next location.  After about 45 minutes I noticed a characteristic hexagonal tower emerging from between the buildings. It was St…


  8. Return to Liam McCormick’s Churches

    08 May 2022

    Two years ago I had a chance to see some of Liam McCormick’s work for the first time. Two out of seven Donegal Churches It was St Conal’s Church in Glenties and St Michael’s Church in Creeslough. Here is the link to the blog post I wrote back then: ‘Liam…


  9. Maybe it’s just nostalgia…

    11 Oct 2021

    Travelling around Ireland makes me more and more aware of how important it is to preserve historical values. Whether it is architecture, landscape or anything else related to our surroundings and culture. I am pointing Ireland here as this is my home for almost two decades now and I do…


  10. Intrepid 4x5 Mk 4 camera - new adventure

    16 Oct 2020

    It took me only two years to get back to large format photography. And I mean here - camera with the lens as I am continually using my incredible pinhole cameras with perspective correction (4x5 and 8x10).  After selling Sinar F2 (in 2018), which I had been using for many…


  11. Large format 8x10

    18 Jul 2020

    Writing of this post will be stretched in time - a form of a short diary.  I am starting on Saturday morning on the 11th of July, and I can’t wait until the next week to tell you what I feel today… And I am amazed. My visual perception of…

  13. Wesley House

    03 Jul 2020

    For the first time this year, I didn't write my Saturday blog for two weeks in a row. Good to be back after this unexpected break.  The restrictions have been loosened a bit so it would seem that it will be easier to reach certain places. Not necessarily. Several areas…


  14. My cameras - part IV - instant photography

    15 May 2020

    Instant cameras - did you think I forgot about them? No, not at all I just wanted to wait a bit with this post and avoid the situation when my blog turns into a purely technical, full of camera descriptions. In addition, real experience with this technology is relatively new…


  15. Ringsend Public Library

    30 Apr 2020

    Last week, I thought it would be a good idea to photograph an interesting building from my favourite period (or around that time), which in architecture was called modern movement. It is supposed to be something that I haven’t photographed yet, or I didn’t pay much attention to. Not an…
