Taken in the Costa Brava, Spain. Focused on the everyday life at traditional meeting points for the New World Order series. The consequences of COVID-19 will become far more reaching than we can envisage. Purposely reflective to show there are two versions of the truth providing a voice for the hidden realities and social injustices of the world. Interested in construction materials, its textures and layers exposing the beauty in imperfection. Revealing the forgotten and frayed edges of the action, the simplicity of the commonplace, the unintentionally over sighted. The juxtapositions and image associations aim to add a layer of ambiguity and improbability recording the changing environment we inhabit.
Born in Dublin, Pablo Hughes is an art installer and multidisciplinary photographer based in Perth.

Hughes’ practice is not exclusively photographic and includes installation, found objects and collage. After completing a B.A in Media Studies and Photomedia at ECU, Hughes’ work has received a number of photographic awards.
