Dublin, born and raised, photographer Steven Doyle chose his first camera at 14. In some ways, it’s more appropriate to say that the camera chose him. He uses its lens as a third eye to uncover his subject’s essential essence, finding that subject’s intrinsic beauty yet always respecting its truth. One of his chief interests is to create an exclusive focus on people and capture their facial expressions’ nuance. Steven lived between London, Milan, Rome and Eastern Europe for several years. During his time in Europe, Steven developed various portraiture and documentary photography styles. Steven stresses, “The photographer brings his own photographic style and passion to his work. Combined with devoted and compassionate attention to his subject, these things produce results that can be little less than revelations.” “I shoot people in such a way as to allow them to see themselves as the world sees them at their best. I tend to concentrate on facial expressions to reveal the subject’s inherent sensuality and sensitivity. I see myself chiefly as a portrait and documentary photographer.” Steven has exhibited in Dublin and Bucharest. He has an extensive work portfolio of portraits to gritty documentary projects; in that latter respect, he documented social issues around children at risk in Bucharest. On an entirely different level, in popular culture, Steven has photographed stars such as Grace Jones, Erica Gimpel, Suzanne Vega, and Mary Coughlan. Recently Steven has produced photographic documentaries on the lives of people who have come to Ireland looking to find better lives for themselves and their families. During the COVID-19 Pandemic, he created portraits of Front Line medical and nursing staff from medical charity SafetyNet Primary Care and is working on a documentary about people living with HIV.
