Visual Art by Jacqueline Heeley
an Irish photographer and filmmaker who is self-taught. She developed her eye as a street photographer in the mid 1990s while living in Dublin and continued this practice when she later moved to Barcelona. Elaborating on the idea of evoking a story in a single frame, she started to make films based on her writings and still photography. From there, it was only natural for her to extend her practice to experimenting with moving pictures. To date, Jacqueline has filmed 14 self-funded films that she has co-directed and co-edited.
