When renowned photographer, Giles Norman, rented a darkroom space in Kinsale in the early ‘80s, both locals and tourists flocked to the tiny window of his studio, which offered a glimpse into his growing portfolio. This welcome curiosity encouraged Giles Norman to open his first gallery in Kinsale, 30 years ago, in 1988.
This month-long exhibition in the historical Old Mill Building will take visitors on a journey through Giles’s expansive portfolio from his early analogue years, through to the advent of the digital era, and the launch of his new Aran Islands 2018 and Rome 2018 collections. Both his Irish and international collections are on display, exhibiting Ireland’s dramatic landscape, alongside street scenes from the world’s greatest cities and bold abstract pieces.
With unique insights into his influences and experiences as a photographer, alongside a video installation featuring a behind-the-scenes look into Giles Norman’s process, this is an exhibition for both admirers of his images and photography enthusiasts.
The exhibition runs until July 29th 2018.
Opening Hours: Daily from 12.00 (midday) – 18.00, or by appointment outside these hours; to book an appointment, contact [email protected] or 021 4774373.
