'Our Type' is the personal photographic project of Revert Studios founder Trevor. It began five years ago to document the once familiar face of Irish towns and villages.
In Trevor's own words -
"I have had a keen interest in old signage and typography from an early age through my Dad's collection of enamel advertising signs which he collected and displayed on our garage wall at home. I wanted to capture as many of the old shopfronts as possible as I noticed they were either being demolished or refurbished in a manner which appeared to have little or no regard to the existing style of building. The project began as a way to document Irish shop fronts and the unique style of typography found in our towns and villages. I also became intrigued in the history behind the shopfronts and when photographing them I always try to talk to the owners and discover the stories behind the Façade. On my journey I also noticed that certain areas shared a specific style of typography and façade which can be attributed to the local craftsmanship of the time. This is an area I am continually researching and trying to to discover more about."
The 'Our Type' project was exhibited last year in the Bernard Shaw in Dublin. To view the exhibition click here.
