This image is taken from the series like roses that never bothered to bloom. Ireland’s current economic climate is in a unique state which is creating many obstacles, including unemployment, that are postponing milestones associated with adulthood. There is a unanimous feeling of uncertainty that is currently present amongst young Irish women. In like roses that never bothered to bloom, Kelsey explores her own feelings of inadequacy, as a twenty-something through the similar experiences of others. It attempts to distil these experiences into tranquil moments.
