Carlow Portraits comprises slow motion video portraits and wide-ranging audio interviews. An intimate and sensitive work, it invites the viewer to spend time with these remarkable people from County Carlow. The participants speak about life, the passing of time, cultural change, and their extraordinary experience of Covid 19. These interviews were conducted during the individual portrait sittings. A website and archive of this project has been made to host these images and stories. Visit it at www.carlowportraits.ie
