BEARA is a beautifully produced study of the magnificent landscape of the Beara Peninsula in South West Ireland. This book is the culmination of a two-year project during which I revisited a familiar landscape to create new images and to look a little closer at what’s behind my 26-year love affair with this small part of the world.
It is a spectacular yet sometimes overlooked place and is only recently gaining some of the recognition it deserves as an exceptional destination to visit and for the lucky ones, to live in.
The book is beautifully produced with 120 pages containing 90 stunning images. The cover concept draws from the overriding influence of texture the Beara brings to my work, the hugely influential reams of copper once mined here and the contrasting subtlety and drama that is all around.
The foreword by Neil Jordan is a suitably personal reflection on a place he knows intimately.
“what Norman McCloskey captures forever is that moment when the rain has stopped, and the familiar beauty emerges from the cloud. You had almost forgotten it was there.”
The book will be produced as a high-quality hardback in two editions. A limited edition will come in a matching slipcase and will be accompanied by a signed print from a series specially chosen for the book. A larger print run for general sale will be produced with the same production qualities.
BEARA is now available for Pre-Order and will begin shipping out next month on November 20th.
Book size is 290 mm x 250 mm, 120 pages on beautiful 170 gsm paper and contains 90 images.
The Limited Edition Art copy will be available in a series of signed and numbered books, and each will come with a limited special edition, signed and numbered print. Printed by me in the gallery on Hahnemuhle Art paper, you can choose which image from the series of four selected for this.
Please choose whether you would like to have your signed book shipped to you or collected from the gallery in person.
