Atlantic Reach - IrishLight Collection

By IrishLight


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.
