IMAGE AND TEXT

I can't help getting excited about my upcoming adventures in publishing and it looks like this book, ON LEAVING,will be for me all about the way and ways image and text conspire to tell a story or to stay out of each others way.
You will get where I am coming from when  you get to see the book.Its all set to be launched in a week and a half's time at the Gallery Of Photography, Meeting House Square, Temple Bar. It Happens at 6pm, on Wednesday, November 26th.
Hope to see you there!
In the meantime you can check out Alan Pentony's images on previous posts right here.(and here)
As always comments are welcomed and sharing is now so important with such a big day for the project looming.
So please like, comment and share this to any one you may feel would have an interest.

ABOUT TO TAKE FLIGHT

Wow! It is such a thrill to be standing at this point in the process making it all work out.
Arranging for the launch of the book to happen.
The printing has by now taken place and from my few hours spent on the press pass a couple of days ago it seems like all will be good and we will have a book to be proud of in a couple of weeks.
This book is being made with the sole purpose of honouring the Heros, the men and women who had to leave this country in the midst of economic turmoil.Its a big undertaking and I hope lots of you turn up on the night to view and to buy this 304 page salute to the men and women who I feel are indeed our brightest stars shining for all of Ireland out there in the firmament.
keep an eye here for updates as we go and get closer to the date!
