Visual Edgelands by Dara McGrath

I recently wrote about the book ‘Edgelands’ Paul Farley and Michael Symmons Roberts.  The book encapsulates so much that we experience within our everyday and for some it is a place we actively return through intrigue and compulsion.  There are lots of words to describe various edgelands however the word itself really does capture the sense I get when i pass through or visit the outer limits or our urban life.  Photographer Dara McGrath has done a series of photos titled ‘Edgelands’ and like the book really resonates with me and highlights these mundane yet thought provoking wastelands.  Here is a link to Dara McGrath’s website:
