Cul de sac

Photographer Ollie Ma’

Model Declan Cullen

 

British suburbia -with all his housing estates, filled with cul-de-sac street and obscurely named lanes. There is an irony there, when you choose to see it, for cul-de-sac- a term used for “dead ends”, or “no exit” -literal meaning : “ass of a bag”, describes so neatly a british suburban town. What happens in the ass of a bag ? Not much… People live their quaint lives, following the formula that society has forged for them. It’s easier to follow the formula, because then you don’t have to think for yourself and hopefully life will be simple.
Sometimes there are people who are trapped in the ass of the bag, who don’t want to follow the formula, and the only way to survive is to find beauty in the mundane or the banal.
It takes an acute eye to find the beauty and the quirks that dreamy and tender, photographer Ollie Ma’ captures these band idol, juxtaposed in front of a typical suburban backdrop of red brick, TV aerials and despondent graffiti.
Inspired by the simplicity and familiar structure of pop music, Cullen aims to writes songs that are catchy, and like any good fleeting moment of pleasure that is direct and without complications”.
Wherever boredom and apathy breeds, so does creativity and fervor. Combined with the ceaseless rain that britain endures, occasionally magic happens in the ass of a bag.
