Shooting alongside a film crew, the ‘Keep Discovering’ project for Fáilte Ireland took Finn on a whirlwind journey to almost every county over 17 days. At times he mirrored the crew’s shots and at other times he worked on his own, exploring the stories of local people and their deep connections with their corner of Ireland.
He captured both stills and short video interviews, all the while trying to unearth the truth of what makes a place special to them. Finn's brief was to deliver a range of themes while shooting the stills. Here is a selection of shots from his favourite theme, ‘The Feels’, which tries to convey how it feels to travel around this island - the sensations and experiences of discovering a place like no other on this planet.
The project was commissioned by Droga5, and the production company was Antidote. Thanks to the whole crew and cast, in particular thanks to Dave Bowen, Frances O’Rourke, Al Byrnes, Siobhan Coakley, Andrew Freedman, Brendan Canty and Colm Keating.
