Gilles Perrin – People of the Sea, at Sirius in Cobh

(c) Gilles Perrin.

An exhibition of photographs by French photographer, Gilles Perrin. The large format black and white images capture the lives of people working in maritime industries around the Cork coastline.

It opens tonight in the Sirius Arts Centre in Cobh with some additional images in the West Cork Arts Centre in Skibbereen (opening tomorrow night). iophotoworks did all the printing and mounting- a Herculean but very rewarding task! This is a must-see show

(I copied the above quoted text from the IOPhotoworks facebook news page).

I’d like to get to this opening myself, and by boat I live only a couple of miles away (how wide is the harbour?),  but with the icy conditions I’m not sure that I’ll venture away from the fire. Will definitely try and see it before it closes though
