Aishling's work reflects with great precision her beautiful and enlightening personality. Contemplating her images is like transporting yourself into each one of those places, it's an ethereal feeling which leaves you desiring to sample more. -Fernanda Iglesias Ogassawara
Aishling sees photographically, experiencing it as a dance between the photographer and the subject, with as many genres and styles as there are approaches to capturing the image in the first place. Sometimes you dance to a slow rhythm and sometimes you adapt to a fast pace, the trick is knowing which dance suits in each situation. Over the years Aishling has worked with traditional portraiture, travel, documentary and montage styles, as well as now combining her technical skills with her performative practice in a series of contemporary self-portraits.
Aishling started her journey with photography at a very young age chasing butterflies in the garden with her camera. She stepped into the darkroom for the first time in 1999 as part of her training in Journalism in Ballyfermot college of further education. From there she went on to specializes in the medium as part of her Audio/Visual degree at Tallaght Institute of technology. It was from here that she really stepped into exploring the photographic medium, which led on to an exciting internship program with Magnum Photos in New York. This trip forever changed Aishling's relationship to photography and returning home inspired she pursued the creative path using photography as her main medium. She became very involved with her local photographic club in Westmeath also at this time. Aishling has been exhibiting her photographic works since 2007 and has continued with her training in the medium participating in workshops with Magnum in both London and Barcelona as well as workshops with Kolga Festival in Tbilisi Georgia. She now enjoys working photographically in the visual wonderland that is Iceland.
