Eva O’Leary

Jun 20, 2017 - Matthew Bradley

My first introduction to Eva O’Leary’s work was through the series Happy Valley, a project that she completed during her MFA at Yale. I was immediately drawn to this body of work and it’s seductive air of mystery that surrounds her images. Much like Johno Mellish’s images, Eva’s leave me wanting to know more, and how or why many of these situations presented themselves for her to photograph. Another appeal of Eva O’Leary’s work is that much of it is informed by her own experience and environments that she was/is very much apart of, engaging with the reality, myth and fantasy that comes with it. I will be keeping my eye out for a book of Eva’s work.
