On March 15th 2020, with the full force of a global pandemic upon us, the pubs of Ireland were forced to close. Their absence has been felt by many, but none more so than those who rely on pubs for social interaction.
The Snug Project was a calendar and limited edition print sale created by Stills & Motion to highlight this rising social issue that ran from November 2020 to January 2021. All proceeds from sales were in aid of ALONE, a national organisation that strives to enable older people to age at home, safely and securely, for as long as they wish.
The project featured 12 images of empty Irish pubs snugs as captured by photographer Finn Richards.
