Having spent a significant portion of her life as an expat, for Poland-born photographer Aga Maru, Sunday was never a favourite day of the week. While everyone else is spending time in their homes eating Sunday dinner and reading the papers, she finds herself wandering through empty streets observing the other side of the Sunday Utopia. The sedated atmosphere cherished by most, for Aga as an adoptive citizen, feels strangely intimidating. What on another day might feel like a new home, stripped of its midweek bustle and vigour seems foreign and desolate.
Aga Maru photographed the Liberties area of Dublin on Sundays between February 2012 and June 2013.
