Clare Lyons

Clare Lyons is a photographer and visual artist based in Dublin, Ireland. Her work is typically deeply private and explores themes of trauma, memory, and her personal struggle with mental illness. Clare's current practice examines the process of uncovering and recalling repressed and suppressed memories using paper-folding and other sculptural methods of working with photographs. Clare is currently Assistant Editor at Junior Magazine which is an annual journal showcasing young Irish photographic talent, and since 2018 has worked with the PhotoIreland Foundation as a volunteer at The Library Project in Dublin.
