These photographs were taking in the Phoenix Park in Dublin.

To observe animals sleeping is one of life’s pure joy. This small herd of deer in the Phoenix Park in Dublin; I have waited a long time to come across a scene of beautiful deer sleeping and so peaceful.

For me these images really display the peace and tranquility that sleep brings- however the slightest sound woke these deer – their environment is one where they are constantly aware of their surroundings and the dangers that threaten them. They sleep with practically one eye open – but when they close their eyes they appear restful and peaceful.

As its name suggests, this method of printing creates artwork designed to last a long time. Two key elements play a role in the lifespan of an archival pigment print—the ink and the paper.
