Description

The islands off Ireland's west coast form a rich cultural landscape, the result of a unique combination of the forces of nature and humankind. This photographic collection, infused with warmth, spans almost fifty years. It celebrates the islanders and their environment, and reflects on disappearing traditions and values in the face of materialism and pop culture. The work portrays the islanders' spirit of perseverance in the face of adversity, their humanity and dignity, their wit and humour.
