then their waters were mingled together is the second chapter of a three chapter body of work. McBride explores the deeply personal process of grieving and catharsis following the loss of his grandmother. Using a combination of contemporary photography and archival family materials, McBride constructs a visual narrative that captures the fleeting nature of life and the emotional impact of loss. Although the photographic work does not feature the physical presence of his grandmother, she remains a powerful force through the use of poetry and obscured imagery. These elements allow McBride to create a sense of his grandmother’s continued influence and presence, even in her absence.
About the Artist
Tyrell McBride (b.1997) is a contemporary photographer currently residing in Dublin, Ireland. McBride’s works typically deal with memory, nostalgia, melancholia and the vernacularity of the family archive. His technique usually involves medium format black and white imagery, pairing archival and contemporary images together, to explore not only his own past, but the past of those who came before. Heavily influenced by Alighieri’s Divine Comedy, he now creates more internalised images of the family and of home, to further gain a sense of self.
