Simon Prunty is an artist from Dublin. He is a graduate of NCAD (The National College of Art and Design) with a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Art Media.
Simon’s photographic work focuses on a passionate revival of traditional analogue photographic practices and his most recent ongoing body of work is based entirely in traditional black and white 35mm and Medium Format analogue photography; entitled, “Looking for Peace”.
Each image is hand-printed by the artist in the darkroom on archival silver gelatin paper. The work explores a quiet, minimalist and mysterious aesthetic, assuming no concrete answers about the world it depicts, but rather displays scenes with an almost agnostic nature; gathering questions and celebrating the unknowable.
Simon has also taught traditional darkroom skills to students at DUPA (Dublin University Photography Association) in Trinity College, Dublin.
