It’s been a busy couple of months since I launched myself as a professional photographer in June. Some really nice briefs have been coming my way. Keep them coming:) If you get a moment, maybe you could visit my online portfolio and have a browse around to see if there’s anything that catches your eye. Let’s make beautiful pictures together. http://seanhayesphotography.format.com
Park Life. A park in a Brussels suburb. Peace and quiet? Is silence really that silent? I worked harder on perfecting the sound of this short film than the images. We Iive in a a media saturated world with a never-ending stream of information screaming for our attention. Nature’s whispers can be just as compelling. All we have to do is listen.
With the increasing ubiquity of photographers and photographs, it was only a question of time before the fine art community posed the question: “What is a Photograph?” Interesting article from the nytimes about redefining photography in the modern age. Another semantics battle methinks: more for the benefit of curators and collectors who need to put things in quantifiable boxes with neat labels for financial reasons. Creators just want to create – others want to define.

The Negative Cutter by Patrick Chapman. Cover photo by Sean Hayes.
Just received copies of a new book this morning from Irish poet, writer, screenwriter and dear friend Patrick Chapman. Patrick kindly asked me if he could use one of my photographs as the cover for his latest literary work. I was delighted to be asked. I’m looking forward to a good read over the festive period. Please check out Patrick’s link below for a complete overview of his writing and film work.
