Hide That Can is an exhibition of photographs from a four-year study of an Irish emigrant community in North London. She photographed the men of Arlington House, a hostel in Camden, London. Many are Irish and came over to London for work in the 50’s and 60’s. These photos also include trips to Ireland which were made possible by the Aisling Project.

About the artist: Deirdre was part of the founding team at Dazed and Confused magazine. Deirdre’s passion for music instinctively steered her career to shoot artwork and press for all the major record companies, including Warner Music, Beggars Group, Domino, Universal Music Group & Warp. Following this Deirdre began working with artists such as U2, The National, Laura Marling, Damon Albarn, De La Soul, Peaches, Gang Starr, Alex Turner, Josh Homme, Emeli Sande & Grinderman.
