Photographer Megan Doherty creates a neon world of fantasy out of the real world she inhabits. Using her friends as inspiration, Doherty’s photographs are her escape from a dreary town in Ireland.
Spanning a number of years, Stoned in Melanchol is in many ways a work of fiction, Doherty told Feature Shoot. “Getting lost is a way to make life a little more appealing.Reality doesn’t compare to the world that can exist in your head,” she adds.
The result is an inside look into an otherwise unknown Irish subculture.
