PHOTOS: Smokers caught in the act of smoking

Photographer Nicolas Reuland gave up cigarettes. Then he set out on this project…

PHOTOGRAPHER NICHOLAS Reuland gave up cigarettes ten years ago.

To celebrate ten years off the smokes, he set out on a new project: portraits of people who hadn’t kicked the habit.

“I have not embarked on an anti smoking crusade. I am not a preacher,” he says about his exhibition Up In Smoke.

I only ask three questions of all the people I photograph: their first name, the average number of cigarettes they smoke in a day, their age when they first started smoking.

Today is your last chance to see Up In Smoke as part of the PhotoIreland Festival 2012. It’s on at the No Grants Gallery on Essex Street, Temple Bar, Dublin.

Here’s a sample of what’s on show:
