Dublin Salt is a photographic project by Peter Gordon exploring the Dublin landscape with an unbiased eye. For the past 3 years, Peter has been getting up at the crack of dawn, returning to locations again and again, trying to create a unique collection of Dublin seascapes. 

Peter wants to create 2 books. A standard edition and a fine art edition, plus an exhibition opening November 8th.  Dublin Salt is a collection of 60 images stretching from Skerries to Shankill and everything in between.

'The challenge was to create images without a reference point, or move existing reference points with original composition, and a dedication to photographing common scenes in a unique light'.

The content of the work is drawn from Dublin’s salty perimeters and the natural and urban elements that reside beside the sea.

The work is inspired by two different, but interlinking aspects of Peter’s life. 

‘Firstly, I was born and bred in Dublin and I’m also a landscape photographer. For many years I’ve been starring out the attic window as the weather systems move in and out of Dublin'.

Home always feels like a natural fit. I wanted to photograph my home. And living in Dublin Bay the sea and light are always at your doorstep.

Secondly, I often work in an environment, teaching photography workshops, where there are strong reference points for the images people want to shoot. There’s that thing about images being, ‘iconic’ and Dublin is certainly not immune from this reality.  

I was drawn to the challenge of interpreting Dublin, my home, in a new way. Graphically speaking (if that's allowed).  

I tried to push harder, by staying out longer, getting up earlier, being more patient, dedicated, with hopefully a sprinkle of craft and skill.’  

Work on the project began early 2016 and is now reaching conclusion. Please get on board and help us turn Dublin salt into a reality.

Risks and challenges

Timing with any project is always a risk. The finished design of the book for example will be carried out in conjunction with Peter by professional designers. The printing of the book will also be undertaken by a separate print house. When dealing with a multitude of people there is always a risk that someone within the circle can drop the ball time wise and cause delays. This can often be out of the creators hands.

To ensure this risk is minimised I am dealing with designers and printers I know and trust to deliver a great job and in time. I have also budgeted additional time for final design and printing. I'm aiming to be ready 1 month before for our delivery deadline to really ensure your reward is delivered to you when you expect it.
