Atlantic Reach - IrishLight Collection

By IrishLight

description

In September 2016 32 amateur photographers, led by Ireland’s foremost professionals took part in 5 photography workshops. They spent 2 days in some of Ireland’s most remote locations along the Wild Atlantic Way. From north Donegal to West Cork their purpose was an inspiring educational experience and the creation of a unique photographic snapshot in time, the IrishLight Collection.

The theme of the workshops was Atlantic Reach and we are now ready to produce a 128 page hardback book and exhibition of this amazing and unique work, all in aid of our charity partner, The Samaritans.

The work shows the light unfolding through teams of photographers shooting different locations simultaneously. This is the essence of the IrishLight Collection. You will see sunrise in Connemara and turn the page to see what’s been happening with the light in Donegal.

The IrishLight team includes Ireland's best landscape photographers: Peter Gordon, Peter Cox, George Karbus, Norman McCloskey, Rohan Reilly, Michael McLaughlin, Ed Gordon, Daragh Muldowney.

And of course the IrishLight Collection team: Aidan White, Alex Mott, Arun Farcas, Barbara Tanzler, Colin Ball, Damian Doyle, Eleanor Burke, Jim Kennedy, John Crowley, John Maher, Keith Mitchell, Mark Furniss, Mark O’ Brien, Mary E Brett, Michael McCarthy, Nicole Le Saout, Noel McIntyre, Noleen Hargan, Padraig Molloy, Pádraig Ó Flannabhra, Paul Byrne, Rebecca Keogh, Robert Wade, Stephanie Johnson, Stephen Conway, Stephen Farrell, Steven Fleming, Stuart Perry, Stuart Teehan, Tony Creedon, Tony Meagher, Yvonne Morgan

The purpose of using this platform is to raise the money to print and design the book. We also want to hold an exhibition of the work and a launch on 21st September in Dublin all in aid of The Samaritans.

If we are successful we will print 1000 copies of the book, hold a 2 week exhibition with 32 pieces on show, one from each participant, as well as host an opening night.

If we reach our goal the risk we see is the work involved in managing the large volume of books. However, we have volunteers in place to help with storage and distribution.

The IrishLight team would like to thank you for supporting the creation of this unique project.

Hey folks .. thanks agin for being involved in this project. We're so close but it's an all or nothing situation with funding. If we miss our target we get no funding. If you we're considering more books, a bigger print or a workshop now is the time to do it. We just have 2 days to go. Thanks again for your amazing support..The IrishLight team..

Print Rewards Explained - Gallery Links

Hey folks .. Nearly at the 10k mark now .. thanks thanks thanks for being involved .. Its getting so so close. We're just about holding it together here but still feeling really good about a positive outcome for the campaign. We've been getting a few questions about choosing the print reward, what images and where can the be seen etc. So if you have chosen, or we're thinking of going for the print reward from the 'Atlantic Reach' gallery your image can be chosen from the selection of work that will make up the book. Link below .. we will be adding additional choices after the campaign.. sorry you need to copy and paste the link .. http://irishlight.ie/irishlight-collection If you go for a print reward from the Irish Masters you can choose from 2 galleries. Links below .. again apologies you need to copy and paste them into the browser. http://irishlight.ie/galleries/irish-masters-collection http://irishlight.ie/galleries/explorelight-collection If you go for the acrylic reward the images can be drawn from the explorelight gallery .. http://irishlight.ie/galleries/explorelight-collection Hope this helps and thanks again for your amazing support. The IrishLight Team

Multiple Awards

Hey folks we're in the final week now and a few people have been in touch asking can they get multiple rewards. This is very possible. The system, unfortunately, does not let you add multiple awards but you can easily just add the monetary value of what you want and we can apply that to the appropriate rewards after the campaign. So if you wanted books and a print reward thats no problem. Thanks again for the support folks and looking forward to a busy week to get this project funded... The IrishLight Team
