Photo journalism project I did about the oldest shops in Dublin town. By going there and shooting with a fully manual 35mm camera, I wanted to investigate their story and their features, in order to realize how they’ve changed in the years and how they’ve stayed exactly the same.
I’ve chosen some of my favorite shops in Exchequer Street, in the city centre of Dublin, street that happens to gather many of the oldest shops in town. Among them: the comic shop, the bridal shop, Boulevard Cafe’, a flower shop and a music shop.
These small shops are the ones you may think struggle the most during the crisis, but at the end of the day they have been there forever, while all the other flashy ones are coming and going all the time.
They are not made out of sparkling star dust, but some of them go as well, occasionally.
They are much more similar to stone dust.
