Daragh Soden Young Dubliners
London-based Dubliner Daragh Soden is a documentary artist who combines photography with prose, poetry, video and installation. Here, he captures the microcosmic world of young Dubliners on the verge of adulthood to explore universal themes of youth, identity and contemplation of the future.
These exhibitions are supported by Institut Suisse Océan.
