Renowned Irish photographer’s exhibit visits Atlanta

“Jewellery Box – Ireland’s Hidden Gems,” renowned photographer Daragh Muldowney’s fine art photographic study of rock pools, sand formations and shells throughout the 17 coast counties of Ireland, will be on display in Atlanta on Thursday, Nov. 8, from 6-9 pm, at Fitzgerald+CO, 3333 Piedmont Road, Suite 1100, in Buckhead.

Muldowney’s photo expeditions have taken him to every continent. He specializes in capturing the many contrasting elements of nature. His work is held in public and private collections and much of it has been published in limited editions.

“The 36 photographs selected for the Atlanta exhibition and the 65 images chosen for the newly published book entitled Jewellery Box – Ireland’s Hidden Gems (special hardback edition) show the diverse beauty of the Irish coast in a multitude of colours, textures and light,” Muldowney said. “Each rock pool was like a jewellery box and each location offered many, yet varied gems.”

Muldowney traveled throughout Ireland in 2010 to compile these images. He used a 30-year-old camera, without filters or artificial light.

The exhibit is supported by the Consulate of Ireland, Fitzgerald+CO, Tourism Ireland, Aer Lingus, Kerrygold and The Irishman Brands.

Photographs from the Jewellery Box collection are available in a range of sizes and finishes on www.dulra.com.
