Eamonn Doyle’s Favorite Book from 2019

Ex-Voto by Alys Tomlinson.   Published by GOST Books.

Ex-Voto is Alys Tomlinson’s five-year project on three Catholic pilgrimage sites in Ireland, Poland, and France. Beautifully shot on large format film, the stunning black-and-white prints were one of my highlights of the Rencontres d'Arles Festival this year where it also very deservedly won this year's discovery award.

Eamonn Doyle's debut photo-book i, 2014, was described by Martin Parr as ‘the best street photo-book in a decade’. This was followed by ON [2015] and End. [2016], which together with i, became known as his Dublin trilogy, culminating in an immersive exhibition at Rencontres d’Arles 2016. Though most of this work was produced in and around the Dublin city centre location where he has lived for over twenty years, Eamonn’s most recent body of work, K, 2018, took him to the wild Atlantic coast of Ireland and to the volcanic landscapes of Extremadura in Spain. Dublin, Ireland.
