Hydrangea Etc.

23 December 2017 – 7 January 2018


Arriving on the Island this time, I noticed the Hydrangea. Bold and colourful. Dotted throughout in various shades of white, blue, pink, red and purple, I followed this garden plant. It became the simple condition for a journey, a way to rethink a familiar place, and a way to insist on a different criteria of observation.



Dublin-born Linda Brownlee’s work, as both director and photographer, consistently redefines the ordinary by turning it into something magical, intimate and enchanting. Drawn to all sorts of communities and cultures, her work beautifully captures the intricate energy between the people and the places that she visits.

Her portrait, fashion and documentary work has not only been displayed in various distinguished galleries such as London’s National Portrait Gallery, but has also regularly featured in publications such as Dazed & Confused, Vogue, The New York Times, The Guardian and Telegraph magazines.

Linda self published her first photo book Achill in 2010. Her project Hydrangea Etc was published by Design group AAD in 2014 and she has most recently published ‘I Zii’, a series that dips in and observes the quiet lives of a Sicilian family living in the mountain town of Gangi.
