Garry Loughlin | Between spaces
Whilst there is a photography tradition of documenting the American road trip, I felt that traveling by bike would expose me to opportunities and encounters that could be overlooked if travelled by car or bus. Taking a slower pace and being on my own speed allowed me, as an observer passing through small American towns, to see the beauty in the banality of everyday life. I feel the decision to cycle not only gave me a stronger connection the landscape but also to the people I met along the way.
I am fine art and editorial photographer from Ireland. I have exhibited work in Ireland, America and throughout Europe, and had my first solo show in 2013 with A Farewell to Arms. In 2014 I self published my first book Between Spaces. I am currently based in Belgium were I am working on a new body of work.
