Camille O’Sullivan was born and grew up in Ireland. Whilst studying architecture at the University College Dublin she began performing in university productions. Following her graduation O’Sullivan embarked on a career as an architect whilst performing in local clubs at night. However, after a near fatal car accident in 1999, O’Sullivan decided to concentrate on her singing career. Since then her career has gone from strength to strength, with sell-out performances around the world, alongside a long standing stint at Edinburgh Festival playing some of the largest venues. McGoverne was commissioned to take a series of portraits to promote O’Sullivan’s 2010 ‘Dark Angel’ tour. This image references the murder ballads of Nick Cave that appear in her performances.
