Self-portrait With Motorcycle

This is the last known image of the artist and adventurer (1615 – unknown) pictured astride his prized classic Suzuki motorcycle ‘Molly’, before setting off on a 2-year expedition to explore and map the Tolka Delta for the Irish Empire (on which the sun occasionally rises). His whereabouts are to this day, unknown, despite foolhardy forays into Fairview Park in search of the missing explorer.

Photographed using an antique Dessoustype camera, handprinted by pale-skinned virgins onto organic goats-rennet paper, then hung out to dry. Prints: limited edition to a run of zero.

Chief Bottle Washer at Blather

Writer, photographer, environmental campaigner and “known troublemaker” Dave Walsh is the founder of Blather.net, described both as “possibly the most arrogant and depraved website to be found either side of the majestic Shannon River”, and “the nicest website circulating in Ireland”. Half Irishman, half-bicycle. He lives in southern Irish city of Barcelona.
