A Moment In Time


A Moment In Time was a photography project celebrating community and family life in Dolphin House, Rialto. It was started in 2006 and concluded in 2007.

Common Ground and Dolphin House Development Association commissioned artist Enda O’Brien to capture and document families and community life through a photographic studio process and through the development of relationships with people living in the estate and its environs.

The vision behind the project was to capture family life in Dolphin House prior to the onset of a possible regeneration process in the flat complex. Its ambition was to archive and exhibit family life in Dolphin House.

The images that emerged from the project were exhibited during ‘Dolphin Decides’, a summer regeneration festival held in Dolphin House during the summer of 2008.

It has been exhibited in different formats both in and outside the community to demonstrate the diversity, participation and contribution that family life makes to the Dolphin House community.

 The project was resourced, co-ordinated and supported through the roles of Siobhán Geoghegan in Common Ground, local residents Linda Kenny and Margaret White from the Digital Project and Enda’s able and enthusiastic photography assistant, Molly Gallagher.
