Lives and works in Ireland.
Don McNeill Healy, Irish photographer based in Dublin, focuses mainly on social issues and long-term projects, allowing him to develop a close and intimate relationship with his subjects. He spent over a year and a half documenting the life of a traveller family in Dublin (96 Pigeon House Road) and since early 2008 he has been working on a project about a homeless Polish man living in the Irish capital (Marko Polo). He has participated in a World Press Photo/ASEF Workshop in Viêtnam and had his work shown at the Lumix Festival for Young Photojournalism in Hanover. In 2008 he received a Visual Arts Grant from the Irish Arts Council and in March 2009 was invited to join VII Photo’s Mentor Program.
Don McNeil Healy presented his work at the Rencontres d’Arles in 2009, nominated by Arnaud Claass for the Discovery Award: Don McNeil Healy at the Grande Halle.
