Eta Aquarids is the name of a meteor shower that appears to come from the water jug of the Aquarius constellation during the first week of May.

This series of 5 prints were made in the river at Borris House Co Carlow over three nights during this time.

This series of unique ‘Photograms’ are made without a camera directly from below the surface of the river in ‘the great Darkroom’ that is night time, in Co Carlow.
