Richard Wright is a documentary photographer based in County Meath, Ireland. In this series of photos, the 21 year old documents his friends and their cars during the recent snowstorm that hit Ireland and Europe dubbed the ‘Beast from the East’.

“These photographs are an accurate representation of the motor culture in County Meath,” says Richard.

Richard says his photography has brought him across the world, most recently to India to cover the daily life of Indian citizens.

“In my photography, I focus mainly on people and their culture and emotion. I become deeply intrigued by different cultures and the emotional result,” says Richard.

Here is a selection of Richard’s car photography from the ‘Beast from the East’.
