„This set of images seemed to spring up naturally in the course of my everyday street photography. I’ve never actually set out with a specific project in mind, but I began to recognise a pattern with these particular images when I got back into photography after a 15 year break a few years back. This also corresponded with my re-discovery of Beckett’s work, so I think my eye was more naturally falling towards these kind of solitary figures on the street. Images of the elderly, especially of their faces tend to be so loaded and clichéd, so I think I was just quite literally trying to come at them from a different angle. What is not shown can be a lot more engaging. I definitely photographed these particular people with a certain reverence and for the most part tired to keep their identity hidden… it’s their unknowability that keeps the images interesting for me.“ (Taken from an interview with Eamonn Doyle )
