The series of images examines the relationship between the photograph, body, and urban space in the context of globalised production and neoliberal governance. The work, set in Dublin and Helsinki, reflects on the symbolism and imagery used to influence the place-making process and rewrite our understanding of the contemporary city. The presence of the body within the photographs acts as an allegory, demonstrating our relationship with modern urban space as being determined by the forces that build them. These forces are frequently in the form of global investment corporations, who use space as a commodity for profit and investment. Therefore, the ideological forces that build them often dictate the relationships we have with our urban spaces.
