About this product
- DescriptionThe first time he saw Roche's Point lighthouse marking Cork Harbour, John Eagle knew he was smitten. 'Coming from an inland town, there was so much excitement in the sea,' he explains, 'and lighthouses encap-sulated all that.' Lighthouses have played an important role on Ireland's extensive and dramatic coastline since the fifth century, lighting the way for many a cargo and passenger ship while ensuring that those who made their living on the sea made it home safely. During a project that lasted over ten years, John made several daring boat and helicopter trips to capture unique images of these wind-swept, wave-lashed buildings. This book brings together these striking photographs with informative text on their details, locations and how to find them. Ireland's Lighthouses is sure to delight all those fascinated by these isolated guardians of the coast.
- Author BiographyJohn Eagle lives on the Beara Peninsula in West Cork. He was born and raised in Oxford, and studied photography. Circumstances led to his mother buying a house in Eyeries in West Cork. He came to stay with her, and liked it so much he decided to live there in 1991. His work sells around the world and the Irish Landmark Trust, which has acquired unused lighthouse buildings, also commis-sioned work from him. Flying in helicopters has been part of the thrill, he admits.
