about this item
An award-winning photojournalist returns to his home country to capture the spirit of Irish life in its centenary year. 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 habits 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.
