about

An award-winning photojournalist returns to his home country to capture in images the spirit of Irish life in the centenary of Easter 1916 One hundred years after Ireland's 1916 Rising, the revolt that ultimately lead to independence, who are the Irish and what has become of the republic they made?

From the streets of Dublin, and the suburbs of towns and cities adapting to new multicultural life, to the older habitats of Ireland's wilder western shores, Seamus Murphy endeavours to capture the spirit of contemporary Ireland in this witty, closely observed and beautiful photographic book.
