“With regards photography, my ongoing practice deals with themes of home, migration and landscape. I use a combination of portraiture, landscape and every day objects to explore what it is to be human. I am interested in the fixed notion of Irishness, and what it means. After returning home to Ireland after three years away, I am constantly inspired by Irish light, and my instagram has reflected this lately.” – Ruth Connolly

“I use instagram as a sort of visual diary. I use it to document my daily life and my love of travel. I also put photographs up from ongoing projects I’m working on, from art and documentary to commercial stuff.” – Ruth Connolly

“I follow friends of course, but I mainly use instagram to follow my favourite photographers, or I use hashtags to discover more about a place or a subject I’m interested in.” – Ruth Connolly
