9780241197097: The Republic

One hundred years after Ireland's Easter Rising of 1916, 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 endeavors to capture the spirit of contemporary Ireland in this witty, closely observed, and beautiful photographic book.

About the Author:

Seamus Murphy is the recipient of seven World Press Photo awards for his work in Ireland, the Middle East, Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Hi photography from Afghanistan won him the World Understanding Award. He has worked with musician PJ Harvey and the New Yorker on film and photography projects, and is the author of two books.

Review:

I love everything about this book...its richness, depth and beauty. Most of all I love to be reminded of the power of Seamus's work. Again, I am speechless and happily lost in a journey through this fascinating and complex country -- P.J. Harvey Wonderful ... Murphy has an extraordinary eye for capturing humanity -- Gemma Tipton * Irish Times * Terrific ... An extraordinary work that captures the strange and the familiar about this mad little island -- Laurence Mackin * Irish Times * Murphy's Ireland is both a strange and familiar place and it unfolds in a wilfully impressionistic fashion ... Another Ireland is evoked, a still tentative place edging its way towards an uncertain future once again -- Sean O'Hagan * Observer * There is nothing superficial about these images; they go to the very heart of things. Filled with pain, unease and anguish, but also violence, enthusiasm and passion, Seamus Murphy's images just have to be seen -- Peter Costello * Irish Catholic *
