Publisher's presentation :
"The Irish landscape was littered with electoral campaign advertising during the recent European, local and national by-elections. Vote No. 1 documents this and examines the culture of election advertising in Ireland.

This book was published after it won 1st Prize at the Vienna Photobook Festival 2015.

What especially fascinated me were the vines which elegantly wound themselves down to the ground from a branch,...
