Shane O'Reilly
Editor, Dublin

Shane O'Reilly is an award-winning writer based in South Dublin, Ireland. On the other side of the Foxrock tracks. When not picking apart the work of Lars Von Trier (for the aforementioned award) he can be found at Dublin's University College, immersed in English and Philosophy. This picture was taken in Vietnam, as he was wrestling back his camera from a would-be camera collector, shortly after another of the locals had successfully taken his wallet, and a rising clash of personalities took his g/f. Great trip.
