Richard Gilligan: Portfolio

Dublin’s luminary skateboard son lives his life through a lens.

Everyone’s very proud of Rich. He always knew he wanted to be a professional photographer and sure hasn’t he only gone and done it?

The by-now world famous bridge photo, which ran in SLAP going on 13 years ago, was the first glimpse of an extraordinary flash of talent which has since developed into a career.

Resident in Dublin and having shot for more magazines than anyone now cares to remember, he is leaving with his young family to start a new life in New York. Before he went, we asked him to talk us through some of his choice cuts from the wonder years.
