Photographer Shay Hunston invites the people of Skibbereen to take part in his photography project "People of the Wild Atlantic Way".
Shay is following the the route of the Wild Atlantic Way from Kinsale to Donegal, taking portrait photographs of the people living in the towns, villages and remote locations along the West Coast of Ireland and in each town and village he stages an exhibition of photograph. Starting on Monday 24th October, he will be taking photographs of local people for an exhibition to take place in the shop windows around the town, turning the streets into an open gallery.
Upon completion of the project a book of photographs will be published and all the proceeds from the sale of the book will be donated to the RNLI – Royal National Lifeboat Institution. Cork Airport will also stage an exhibition of the photographs taken in West Cork. Online and print media in Ireland and abroad will also have access to the photographs.
Shay has recently completed successful exhibitions of the people of Kinsale, Timoleague, Courtmacsherry and Clonakilty which you may have already seen and would now like to include as many of the Skibbereen business community in the project as possible.
