Faolán Carey is a portrait and documentary photographer born and based in Dublin, Ireland. A self taught photographer, he has been developing his artistic process while also working commercially for the past 8 years. Faolán's commercial career has partially grown out of his proximity to youth and music culture in Dublin. He has spent a decade documenting Irish nightlife and has had work published in; NME, The Fader and more. Faolán has spent the last few years working alongside Fingal County Council on a handful of long term art projects centered around community and space and has worked on collaborative projects for Visual Carlow and the Irish Architectural Archive. Faolán's personal work, sometimes unintentionally, sits at the crossroads between deeply personal, lived experiences and broader working class issues in Ireland. His photographs delicately balance warmth and intimacy with underlying narrative references to local histories and tradition.
