Dowling’s practice as a photographic artist is participatory and rooted within portraiture. It is concerned with human behavior, an exploration and observation of how people communicate and relate to each other and the places they live. Her work is not specific to one time or place, projects become multi-layered, often happening in several countries, during which she builds connections across communities, societies and cultures. Working closely with her subjects she explore the ways in which we represent ourselves. Projects also concentrate on our sense of place, relationships, family and community. Central to her practice is the role that photography plays in daily life as a means of expression and representation. Recent commissions and residencies have centered on interaction, communication, objects and journeys within cities.
Dowling has worked on commissions, projects and residencies in many countries including with LACMA, The Whitechapel Gallery, The Photographers’ Gallery, Belfast Exposed, The Courtauld Gallery, Tate and Barnardo’s.
