Click to preview Vanishing Ireland (2nd Edition) photo 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.

As an outsider, who has lived in Ireland for 20 years, experiencing and understanding the mythical and untameable nature of this country is a long journey, and probably not one that will ever be fully appreciated by anyone who is not Irish. Nemo Niemann has deftly captured the core of the Irish enigma, reflecting it in a beautiful and lasting record that will outlive the sadly vanishing entities of this unique island.
