Moving Portraits, a looped filmed work by artist Gordon Hogan


In this work, Hogan has filmed a group of individual moving portraits of people in Tipperary. Approaching the camera lens, each person takes a passive or active role as they come into focus. Some approach  the camera with warmth, others with strength and pride,  many with a sense of vulnerability. Are they themselves or do they become performers for the camera? Does the camera naturally bestow an actor’s role on the individual? Can we ever really be ourselves in another’s company in any case? Whilst the images suggest various personality types, they also show the raw individuality of each the subjects.

Hogan films each with a cinematographers eye to detail, looking to trap the essence of each of his subjects in his lens over the brief seconds of each approach.
