Instead of a brush, Giles takes his 35mm Nikon to paint images of the Irish landscape that evoke a purity of vision, mostly stripped of man-made intrusion. Wider views of wild, remote places intermingle with small details of windows and moments in urban and rural life with little concession to the human form. Preferring to keep his pictures ‘real’, he shuns the special effects of modern photography. Skeletons of fishing boats, lonely roads, deserted ruins and cobbled streets speak of a life apart from the image, and of our temporary passage. A shaft of light between clouds, a breaking wave, the elegance of a single flower remind us how special these moments are. Accompanied by his own observations and insights on his work, this photographybook is a must for anyone who shares Giles’s passion for the Irish landscape.
