  • Richard Fitzgeralds evocative images of rural life form a narrative thread with the not-so-distant past. His camera focuses on the back roads of the countryside, and records intimate moments of people in their cottages and farms. Nuns; rosary-nights, confessions, coffins, and currachs are captured along with horse-fairs and peat harvesting. The dimly-lit rooms of Ireland prior to the arrival of electricity are eloquently remembered in his first-hand account of his childhood years; his early experiences observing light and shadow in a world illuminated by candlelight and oil-lamps are poignantly recalled in exquisite detail. The result is a unique album that is both compelling and graceful; a fond tribute of an earthier time and peace.
