About the Book
This is an updated, slightly enhanced, more affordable edition of my large format "Vanishing Ireland" book. It is available, currently as an 8x10, imagewrap edition (paperback to come). The following is a description of both editions:
Ireland has undergone an enormous transformation in the past decade. Through economic prosperity and immigration of workers from the EU and around the world, Ireland's "face" is changing rapidly. In a sense, Ireland is vanishing before our eyes. This book , with its 149 plates in Black & White, seeks to capture Ireland as it is and was, for the future will change everything. The People, the Land, the Sea, and the Ruins will evolve, but on these pages, will remain frozen for a moment in time.
Nemo has worked as a professional photographer since graduating from college in 1976. After deciding against architectural graduate school, Nemo turned, instead, to photography. After first shooting photojournalism and sports for four years, Nemo finally settled on a career in commercial photography specializing in fashion and lifestyle. Over the years, Nemo never lost his love for landscape photography and rarely leaves home without a camera and several lenses. His worldly travels include over twenty trips to Great Britain and fifteen to Ireland. In fact, the love of Ireland is so great, he and his wife were married at Castle Ward in County Down. Based commercially in New York, Nemo shares a farm in Pennsylvania with his graphic designer wife, Carol, their twin boys, four horses, three cats and a dog named Doolin.
