My house in North Belfast is located near a good viewing point for seeing the Cave Hill, which bears a strong resemblance to a person’s face lying down. Since I moved to Belfast 11 years ago, I’ve undertaken several projects based on this locally well-known landmark, which is known as Napoleon’s Nose. During the pandemic, everybody needs to wear a face mask, so I decided to cover Napoleon’s Nose using a face mask in front of my camera

私の家はケイブヒルが、仰向けで寝る人の顔に見える位置からすぐの場所にある。ベルファストに11年前に移住して以降、このナポレオンの鼻として地元で知られるランドマークため、いくつかのプロジェクトを計画した。パンデミックの間、誰もがマスクをつけなければいけないように、ナポレオンの鼻にも、カメラの前でマスクをつけてみた。
