BOOKS

A collection of work

Over the years, I took the decision to collate as much of my photography work into a select collection of books. Seeing my work come together in this format has been a great source of pride for me. I invite you to explore each, and hope that you find them of value.

Ireland

The Way We Were

First published: 2018

The photographs in this book bring with them rich memories of a past that is almost gone, and details of an everyday life that was simple and yet profound – a life now obscured by the passage of time, but which brings alive a people and a past recalled with fondness.

This book marks a transgression from the content and style of my two previous collections which dealt with the richness, variety and beauty of the landscape of the Dingle Peninsula.

 

But the same logic and principles apply, whether photographing inside or out. 

This book is an invitation to come with me to enter into and share in the privacy of a domestic life of a bygone age.

Dingle

My Only Place

First published: 2015

From the subtle colours of early morning light, the Irish landscape compels me to capture it. Ireland's notorious changeable weather provides a challenge and there is a depth and emotion which each ray of light imparts on this demanding landscape.

My images reflect the changing light, and my use of wide angle lens lends to it a better sense of place and location.

The strong use of foreground intensifies the image, while the infinite expanse of ocean reminds us of the vastness of our world.

It is here, in Ireland, with its wind and rain, sunshine and cloud, that I find inspiration for my work.

Gathering Light

First published: 2012
