ST. COMGALL'S PRIMARY SCHOOL

Growing up in West Belfast, I had always crossed paths with St. Comgall’s Primary School and although I was never a pupil there myself, I always felt connected to in some strange way. Over the years I continued to see the decay and deterioration of a building that once supported many children in their education as well as the staff who worked there to support those same children. This fascinated me as it made me think about my own primary school and how heartbreaking it would be to see it in such a way. I then began documenting this building over a period of six months to visually show the breakdown and collapse. Some days felt strangely welcoming, and others felt extremely inhospitable. Some areas appeared neat and organised, while others were cluttered and disrupted by their original design and function.
