Our framer's favourite images
Joe Gellérffy is our longest-standing member of the team (outside the Norman family!) having worked with Giles and Catherine for seven years now – he has seen many changes both in the gallery and the studio. And as you may know, we do all our framing in-house and Joe is the one who does all this framing, so we thought who better to ask to share their favourite images as he spends most of his working day handling the photographs. In truth, he wasn’t too impressed that two of his favourite images were previously chosen by our gallery manager (Fortune Teller and The Bookseller) for her favourites list, but he’s put together his own unique selection. Enjoy.
"A storm is coming, but this big tree is still standing even though almost all of its roots are exposed, which shows ‘it is the roots which give a tree strength, not its branches’ (to quote Dhliwayo)."
"For me, black and white photography is the best medium to offer an accurate view of real lives."
"I moved to Ireland 14 years ago from Hungary, and during my time here, I’ve only ever seen one heavy snowfall hit Ireland, and that was in 2018 when Storm Emma met the Beast from the East. The snow gave me a totally different view of Kinsale."
