Kate Hutchinson’s Irish Grandmother series

Kate Hutchinson’s series, Irish Grandmother, began as a way of ‘connecting to and bestowing importance on my grandmother, all the while spending time with her in her Dublin flat where she dwells alone. Since the project’s inception in 2006, further visits in 2007 and 2008 have allowed me to examine and bear witness to her daily life. My grandmother is a quiet and reserved woman who is an integral part of who I am. She does not readily allow people to enter her world or know her thoughts. While photographing her daily routine and rituals, I did not so much learn about her history or her life story, as was part of my original goal, rather I discovered who she needs to be to get through every day’.
