About the Author
Agnès Pataux is a teacher and photographer. Her work has been exhibited in France, Italy, and Ireland. Colm Tóibín is a journalist and author of The Heather Blazing, The Story of the Night, and The Blackwater Lightship.
These beautifully intense and solitary photographs capture the essence of Ireland, a country where the natural landscape has exerted a strong influence on the consciousness of its people. Included are stunning depictions of geological formations and human-made equivalents such as the rugged, boggy mountains of Connemara, the enormous cliffs of the Aran Islands, and the limestone patterns of the Burren. These are powerful images of the Irish landscape and its inhabitants-people profoundly marked by the relationship they have developed with their surroundings.
