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? Photographer Seamus Murphy, exile and escapee, digs deep to discover the forces and mysteries that drive - and have often beguiled - the country since its birth. 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. [Note: The Republic has been purposefully designed so that the front cover falls away from the spine. The book lies flat when opened, leading to a more conducive photography viewing experience for the reader.]
