About The Light of Day
"Tony O’Shea is firstly interested in the moment where the ritual and the casual face each other in the complex light that comes from Irish skies. He likes gatherings and also public spaces. And he is watching for the second when, even if his subjects are performing, a guard has been let down. It is then, that the camera becomes an uneasy, tentative, hesitant window into the soul. He seeks images of individual loneliness and also isolation, figures in a state of reverie and contemplation, or figures in a state of excitement." - Colm Tóibín RRB
Photobooks & The Gallery of Photography Ireland are pleased to present The Light of Day by Tony O'Shea. The book is a retrospective of O'Shea's work, spanning 4 decades from 1979 to 2019 and is published to coincide with an exhibition of his work at the Gallery of Photography Ireland in 2021. A programme of events will therefore be announced in early 2021.
