As part of their ongoing "Spotlight" series, Adorama TV looked at Irish documentary photographer and filmmaker Moira Sweeney's career and work. Sweeney got her start as a child when her mother gifted her a camera for Christmas after Moira expressed an interest in photography and then she branched out into cinema and broadcast documentary work later in life. Her experimental films in particular have garnered her numerous awards and recognitions.

Her background in documentary film shows through in her photographic work, but it's particularly interesting to see how differently Sweeney approaches various subjects. To learn more about her work, watch the video below.
