No one book can ever do Ireland Justice. 30 Nov. 2007
By J. Guild - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I have a large number of books about Ireland in my collection .While many are about history,and literature;I have many that are just "picture books" I have visited Ireland three times and while there are so many things that never cease to amaze me,the sights you encounter are spellbounding.
This book has to be one of the more unusual approaches to "photographing Ireland" that I have ever seen.
To start with, neither of the authors are Irish. Jan Morris who wrote the text is from Wales and Paul Wakefield ,who took the photographs is from Britian.Therefore it quite appropriate to say that this is Ireland as seen by outsiders.

On the dust jacket is this comment;

"Together,Paul Wakefield and Jan Morris have created a striking tribute to a country that is both exotic and uncertain,whimsical and mysterious." ..That they certainly did!!!
The book contains 75 photographs,that are quite unlike anything you normally come across in similar books.Many photogtaphs are quite melancholy and all but one or two were taken on sunless days.Most of these pictures are full page or larger.An interesting aspect of this book is that there is no corelation between the photographs and the text. Therefore one could just viev without reading.That would be a mistake;because the text is superb and written with insight and understanding.Some of the photographs would be more interesting if Wakefield had provided some details for them.
Many of the photographs are of such ordinary things that they prove the old adage that "Artists see where others only look". Beauty is everywhere,but it takes photographs like Wakefield's to show it to us.
This book was first published in 1990 and republished again in 1998. It is certainly worth the effort to search out and enjoy because it is definitely a different approach to photographing Ireland.
