The Light   Brian Doyle
My work is grounded in a desire to document phenomena that routinely affect our lives, but often go unnoticed.

I hope to heighten our awareness of the ephemeral forces at play all around us. On closer observation, the everyday can once again become strange and give up something new.

I find inspiration in the tension between our perception of the natural world and culturally ingrained responses to our environment. Information overload and the false assumption that technology equates with progress are themes explored in my recent work. - Brian Doyle
