'Stoned in Melanchol' - Megan Doherty
Irish Artists: Having had her compositions featured on the likes of Dazed & Confused, Somewhere Magazine and The New York Magazine, Megan has lent her series titled 'Stoned in Melanchol' to FAC.
Megan has commented that her aim for the series was to:
'Transform the banality and monotony of small-town life into an alternate reality of sorts; my work serves as a form of escapism for both my subjects and myself. These photographs document urban youth within Derry, Northern Ireland - each scene providing a glimpse into an underground subculture, and each dominated by a narrative of its own.
Focused predominantly on themes of youth, subculture, freedom, sexuality and identity, these photographs aim to blur the line between reality and fantasy, and ultimately, serve as a form of escapism for the viewer.'
Check out the series below.
