McDermott & McGough: No. 26 Sandymount Avenue
Edited by Gerald Matt, Sandra Huber. Interview by Gerald Matt.
David McDermott (born 1952) and Peter McGough (born 1958) met in New York in the 1980s, and soon became known for their total embrace of and immersion in the Victorian era. Since then, McDermott and McGough have explored other time periods with equal commitment, including the 1950s and 1960s. No. 26 Sandymount Avenue focuses on the time-traveling duo's recent cyanotype series of photographs of their former home in Ireland, a residential gesamtkunstwerk furnished with extraordinary period details and still-life vignettes. With its blue leather cover, this artist's book perfectly embodies McDermott and McGough's creation.
