The Shadow Of James Joyce: Chapelizod And Environs
This is a photographic homage to James Joyce, whose last great masterpiece Finnegan’s Wake had its locale in Chapelizod, where the river Liffey begins its last descent out to sea.
Contemporary Japanese photographer Motoko Fujita captures the spirit and body of this historic village on Dublin's fringes, and the enclosure of Phoenix Park that surrounds it.
In over sixty stunning black and white images, she walks the viewer through a townscape and landscape little changed in the seventy years since Joyce's death, commemorating as did he the essences of a natural world fixed in time.
