NICHE by Orla de Brí – UNIVERSITY CAMPUS LIMERICK SEPTEMBER 2021 AND MAY 2018
When I first photographed this a few years ago I thought that this was the “diver” and could not find any relevant information but as a result of my 2021 visit and the use of a reverse image search I discovered that the artist responsible was Orla de Brí. I am now in the process of publishing the 2021 and 2018 images.
In 2021 I used a Sony A7RIV with a Voigtlander 40mm lens
In 2018 I used a Sony A7RIII with a Sony FE 24-70mm lens [the better combination]
Niche’ was commissioned for the campus of The University of Limerick. 8 meters in height, it comprises a polished bronze figure with branches on a Corten Steel pilar.
