Enda Burke is a photographer based in the west of Ireland, shooting both portrait constructs and street photography with a 35mm film camera. Enda’s work explores themes of family and catholic iconography in contemporary Ireland, allowing humour and integrity to shine through the mundane. Enda is particularly interested in the monotony associated with working class life, and how small details of colour and play become marvels in monotonous settings.
Due to the strict lockdown measures introduced in Ireland in March I decided to take portraits of my parents during lockdown. These images are taken using nostalgia, humor and catholic iconography as a form of escapism from the stress of lockdown.
