Graffiti never looked so good
Photographer Enda Cavanagh regularly haunts the Forty Foot in Sandycove, Co Dublin capturing lone swimmers at dawn and the tide thundering up the steps to meet them.
But his latest exhibition at the Cooper House Gallery in The Coombe shows a fascination with other watering holes, particularly the derelict baths of Dún Laoghaire and Blackrock.
Rarely has graffiti looked as good as it does in these wide angle views taken at sunset, with the sun warming an inner chamber decorated with day glo colours and creeping mould.
The dive at Blackrock baths (above) is a poignant reminder of childhood, and the impossibly high drop. Now, however, it is partly demolished.
Duality, a photographic exhibition by Enda Cavanagh showing at the Copper House Gallery, St Kevin’s Cottages, Synge Street, Dublin 8 until November 24th
