Virgin Mary

I'm obsessed with Catholic imagery and iconography, growing up in Ireland I didn't have a lot of choice. The most potent of these for me is the Virgin Mary. She tends to turn up in my work in some form or another. I put this down to childhood gift from my amazing Grandmother (a talented musician, artist, a notorious card cheat and a religious fanatic). A 'glow in the dark' bedside Virgin Mary complete with a ring of Stars as a Halo. This was the first thing I saw in the morning and the last thing I saw at night for many years.

Currently I'm working on a book of my favorite shots of Virgins. Here are some of the finals.
