Paradise Lost - Vol.3
Produced, designed and published by PhotoIreland. This edition is also available from the Library Project in Dublin.

The site has been sold and public access denied. This work reflects upon humankind's ability to inflict harm in the quest for profit, exploring how the desire for personal wealth and exclusivity supersedes collective appreciation and the inate instinct to protect the natural world.
Elements from this environment were incorporated within the processing of this work and the uncertainty of how the film would respond to human interference mirrors the uncertainty about what lies ahead for this particular habitat.
