Ayesha Ahmad 

BA [Hons] Photography

Ayesha Ahmad (b. 2000) is a visual artist who studied a BA in Photography at IADT, Dublin. Her work is a combination of mainly portraiture and fine art photography, often with a sculptural element to the images she produces and the ways in which they are installed. Across her work Ahmad employs colour, perspective and compositional devices to evoke a feeling of otherworldliness and create a dream-like atmosphere.

Blue Hour

Water surrounds us, it is within us; it heals us and breathes life into us. 'Blue Hour' is a meditative visual journey of water and the memories it holds. Composed of a series of three photographic prints accompanied by a plaster sculpture of the artist's hand, containing collected rainwater in the palm. This work explores the connection between water, memory and the human body. The water which we embody is the very water that returns to the sea to begin the cycle once again. A visual metaphor of the cycles of life itself. It is an everlasting journey, creating and holding memories along the way. Blue Hour portrays this ongoing act of remembering.
