RETIRED DUBLIN FIREFIGHTER turned photographer, Greg Matthews, has spent many hours on Dublin’s streets photographing people who are completely unaware they are being snapped.

Matthews was recently awarded Irish Street Photographer of the Year. He says: “Although it’s a hobby, I’m totally passionate about it.

I just love to take photos of people, especially as they go about their daily lives throughout Dublin. For me, it’s just all about capturing that moment.
