Irish by Sean Sexton
Book DescriptionYet these photographs, which cover the first century of Ireland in the era of photography, do more than tell the political story. They give a wider insight into a people, a landscape and a lost way of life. They capture the sheer hard labour of rural survival: cutting peat for fuel, gathering seaweed, fishing and tilling the soil - against the often harsh Irish landscape. They also show the grandeur, elegance and complacency of life in the Big House, home and symbol of the doomed Anglo-Irish elite.
