For Your Consideration: Martin

at

Martin.

Available online for the first time.

In November 2013, photographer Donal Moloney encountered a homeless man feeding a flock of pigeons in Westland Row, Dublin 2.

A friendship began.

Donal writes:

This short documentary explores the development of our relationship over the last few years but more importantly the search for happiness and what it means to different people.

    I’d suggest Donal’s work can stand up for itself, Bodger

    some overzealous comment-deleting going on

      i thought i had read comments that were deleted alright

      really poor form from BS, let opinions be challenged

        That’s a small bit misleading. The comment I’m referring to wasn’t personal agaisnt either man. It was a suggestion that it’s wrong to profit from someone else’s misfortune. I don’t think that’s what Donal is doing, but I still think the comment should have stood. Leave it to others to discuss it, no?

    Such a lovely documentary. Well done Donal.
    I’m constantly amazed at the constant BS commenters urge to find the negative within so many posts no matter the subject or how positive it is. Isn’t it ironic that the documentary examines our happiness yet there’s so many unhappy people about.

            Nah, not on a Friday afternoon. I’m too busy thinking about the fact I’m to old for Leccers Piccers, really.

    I remember Broadsheet posting the first photo Donal had taken of Martin a few years ago and the reaction caused quite a stir. Trolls appeared from all angles and some people even suggested that Donal would drop him within a week or two of getting a few more shots. Yet here we are are 3/4 years later and they are friends for life.

    Congratulations Donal, you are a credit to yourself and have me believe there is a future for the human race.
