He concentrated on photography since 2008, making street photographs of people on Parnell Street and O'Connell Street in Dublin. He produced a trilogy of self-published photo-books on Dublin that were well received. This publication, i, was inspired by Samuel Beckett. Doyle's subjects were elderly workingclass people photographed "from above, as if looming over them while they went about their daily business." Martin Parr declared it "the best street photobook in a decade".Doyle has been photographing his fellow Dubliners since the early '90s and has developed a unique approach to his street portraiture. Despite the close range muggers-eye-view, the images remain respectful, reverent, almost in awe of the mysterious figures they depict. The photographs give us mere fragments of their subjects' narratives yet enough to inspire feelings such as kinship and compassion. His photographs suggest that every life has weight and drama, even if its meaning is ultimately elusive.
