Dara McGrath (b. 1970)

Dara McGrath is a photographic artist based in Cork. His work explores transitional spaces, those in-between places where the landscape and the built environment often intersect, and where a dialogue – of absence rather than presence – is created. His practice is driven by overlooked human interruptions in urban, suburban and rural contexts. Dara works primarily with the photograph but also uses documentation, archive video, interviews, objects and creates his own video. 

McGrath has exhibited at the FotoHof Salzburg; Gallery of Photography, Dublin; Thessalonika Photo Biennale; FotoWeek Washington; Copenhagen Photo Festival; Centre des Beaux Arts Brussels; Singapore Photo Festival; and Yokohama City Museum; and has represented Ireland at the Venice Biennale of Architecture. He has received the Solas Award, numerous bursaries from the Arts Council of Ireland, and the AIB Prize, and has been shortlisted twice for the Lange-Taylor Prize.
