Temple Hill Burial Ground

The photography for this project explores the unique environment and history of Temple Hill Burial Ground in Blackrock as part of a new publication in collaboration with Anthony Kelly and Seán McCrum.

Artist Anthony Kelly visited the burial ground over a three year period exploring its rich sensory environment through sound recording. There are two CDs which are part of the publication. The first features a detailed conversation between Christopher Nuzum and Seán McCrum. The second CD features a composition interweaving voices (including stonemason Michael Roe and Christopher Nuzum) with an evocative series of nature recordings made by Anthony Kelly over a three year period in Temple Hill.

This project has been made possible by grants from Dun Laoghaire Rathdown Arts Office and Quaker Historical Library, for which the artists are grateful.

The publication is available through Farpoint Recordings.
