"Denied” is a project that explores Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) people and families.  The goal is to highlight the rights denied to children with LGBT parents, and also the rights denied to LGBT people when it comes to adopting and having children in Ireland.  The series of images/photographs were taken mainly in the family home, where family portraits and individual portraits where shot.  The project considers the psychological effects of being denied a basic human right and uses statistics along with text to incorporate personal testimony from the subjects to further explore the issue and engage with the viewer at an even deeper emotional level.
