KINSALE photographer Rohan Reilly has won First Place at the recent International Photography Awards (IPA).
The self-taught photographer has received awards from many prestigious organisations including The Prix De La Photographie in Paris, UK Landscape Photographer of the Year, and Black and White Spider Awards. He exhibits regularly in Ireland and has been published in magazines and newspapers including The Irish Sunday Times, The Independent, Photography Week, and Dodho Magazine.
When not running his gallery, he photographs and gives workshops.
Rohan’s award-winning photos for the IPA awards were a study on fishermen’s huts built on stilts in the Venetian lagoon in Italy. He was drawn to the ramshackle shapes, the random junk, the vibrant colour and quirkiness of these huts. He used long exposures to create an ethereal atmosphere, giving the impression the huts were ‘floating in space’.
