I have no idea how I forgot to tell you but I was made an Ambassador for 500px earlier this year, come find me there https://500px.com/catmacbride
For decades the end of August, beginning of September always meant the return to books. All through school and college and later in my life while teaching, this time of year always had the buzz of new books and new pencils and the excitement of learning something new to look forward too.
This year I wanted to celebrate this time of year and do something different, so I gathered together some of my (many) favourite books to enjoy again and use as the basis for a small series of paper craft scenes.
I hoped each scene could become a little world on top of the piles of books which hold so many magical worlds within their pages.

I'm delighted to say that I was awarded a Fellowship in Photography from the Irish Photographic Federation (IPF) on Saturday the 23rd of September 2017 :)
My written statement:
It may seem a little odd, but I have always loved paper. As a child I would sit, scissors in hand and cut-out chains of people & free snowflakes from sheets of paper just to entertain myself.
When I started a 365 photography project back in 2011 it didn't take long to run out of things to photograph. Once again I turned to a blank sheet of white paper; this time to make something to use as a prop.
2458 days later I'm still taking a photograph everyday. Making stuff from paper has become my “thing” and with my camera I try to bring my imagination to each paper scene.
This panel of 20 images comes from my on-going photography project and represents a glimpse of how I imagine the night would look if the world was made of paper.
