PORTRAITS DE VILLES

DARAGH SODEN

Daragh Soden is an artist and photographer from Dublin, Ireland, working in London.

Ranging from fine art to fashion photography, his work deals with universal issues that often affect him personally.

His approach to his art places specific, personal experience within the context of the universal. Using mainly still images, but also of moving images, prose and poetry, Soden’s art practice can be described as a kind search for truth. He sees his role as an artist as a way to question society and to invite others to do the same.

Soden's Young Dubliners series, a combination of portraits and text, has been exhibited in Dublin, London and Paris. In 2017, he was awarded the Grand Prix du Jury at the Hyères Fashion and Photography Festival. He has since shot editorials for Holiday magazine amongst others and will have a solo show at the 2018 Festival in Hyères.

Soden continues to divide his time between personal fine art projects and fashion photography, each supporting the other.
