We always idealise Summer. Since the first day of the year, we cross days in the calendar, daydream about the sand and make plans to leave the city, putting all our hopes for happiness on those warm days. Long walks on the beach, bonfires by the ocean, maybe a quick romance.
But June always comes, and it’s sticky, and we are not so tanned, and we end up spending most of our time in the garden of the same pub we go to during the winter. We long for the beach, but when we can’t afford to go there, we have to be contented with an inflatable pool in the backyard and something that vaguely mimics a tropical cocktail.
The sea does not remind me of Summer, the sea reminds me of a music video with handsome teenagers. Chlorine and fake grass remind me of summer. For all of us who had to stay in the city most Summers, Camden Beach was the closest we were to that beer ad dream.
I prefer the idea I have of Summer during winter rather than the real Summer, which always has its flies.

(1991, Stockholm) was raised on a small island off the Canadian west coast and draws and lives wherever she finds good light.

They work fluctuates between reality and dreams through the ability to work ultra-materially to negotiate informal formings of immaterial language states, drawn as fluid agents of speech, gesture and desire.

Irene is a photographer and book editor from Bilbao, Spain based in London. She graduated from the London College of Communication in 2017 and has participated in several group exhibitions and art fairs including PhotoLondon, Paris Photo and Offprint Madrid amongst others.
Built upon an exploration of the dying physicality of the photographic image, her work aims to remain as close and tangible to the viewer as possible. As a result, its dissemination is mainly through printed media, such as a set of prints or photobooks, for instance, Land Of (2017), published by Duende Print which was showcased in Offprint London and Paris.
