1 - 2 weeks availability
Renowned photographer Giles Norman presents over 150 of his enduring black-and-white images in this remarkable collection. In the almost thirty years since his gallery opened in Kinsale, County Cork, thousands of visitors have witnessed his special talent. Handed his first camera at the age of eighteen, Norman is entirely self-taught, inspired by his relative, Belgian painter Henri de Braekeleer, and photographers such as Cartier-Bresson and Doisneau. With his 35mm Nikon, Norman creates images of the wild and remote parts of Ireland that have remained untouched by human hand, and of small details of windows and moments in urban and rural life. From rugged headlands and windswept oceans to fragile flora and shadowed skies, these images are as enduring as they are iconic and capture the timeless splendour of Ireland.
Giles Norman lives in Kinsale, County Cork. A chance request to photograph a school project provided his first opportunity to use a camera and by 1981 he was creating his first portfolios. He developed his distinctive style, travelled Ireland in search of images and opened his own gallery. The gallery was a success and gained Giles recognition as one of Ireland's leading photographers. He still travels a lot in search of photographs. Giles may have inherited his talent from his mothers's family as her great uncle was the Belgian painter, Henri de Braekeleer: his paintings still hang in the Royal Museum of Fine Arts in Brussels and he was considered one of Van Gogh's great influences.
