“Ulysses reveals what it is like to be a person – man, woman, woman-man, man-woman – inhabiting a sometimes unruly, but always mutable, body. The book deftly records all the sensual movements and machinations of mortals as they attempt to navigate their sliver of this planet. These same concerns resonate in Deirdre’s photographs.”
from the accompanying text by Nuala O’Connor

Taking Ulysses as a guide, Deirdre Brennan explores the changing face of Dublin over the last decade, capturing the rich tapestry of the city and its inhabitants in a series of striking photographs. The social, cultural, political and personal are intertwined in these images of a city again in transition.
