“Winds of Change”, essay by Ingrid Lyons


Paul Kelly is a photographer based in the docklands area of Dublin. With a keen eye for
momentary happenings and a sympathy for narrative context, he brings his subjects into focus
against a backdrop of change and transience. Kelly moved to the area 15 or 16 years ago and
initiated a body of work in 2014 that involved working closely with local residents and soon-to-
be friends. Kelly’s eye for momentary shifts, subtleties, turns and intricacies, his careful

area, he has eked out a role as resident artist within the community dynamics.
