Basement Stairs

Conor Elliott Fitzgerald

My photographs are replete with absurdity and negation. Obscured faces and blocked horizons abound. Instead of functioning solely as photographic documents, my pictures are ambiguous shards of lived experience – observed and constructed – that point out life’s contradictions. Like Sisyphus embracing the absurdity of his endless task, I make images to engage with the pain, irony, frustration and joy of life.

I want my pictures to be at once funny and unsettling. I felt slightly embarrassed after making "Basement Stairs" – a sure sign that I was on the right track.
