In his Dublin trilogy (i, ON and End.), acclaimed photographer Eamonn Doyle captured the combined actions of the city and its population as they played out in front of him.
With his latest book, K, Doyle moves away from the urban east coast to the western Atlantic edge of Ireland, to a landscape that in places appears out of time, a parallel world untouched by human presence.
Through the intense colour images of K, we follow a figure that shape-shifts as it travels across this landscape. Entirely veiled in cloth, the figure is spectral, changing in colour and materiality as it is pushed and pulled by gravity, wind, water and light. In places it appears almost gaseous, in others it is molten and then, at times, the weight of being earthbound becomes apparent.

With his Dublin work, Eamonn looked at how the contemporary forces of the city and the movement of its people continually shape each other. In K, he seeks out the primal, even primordial, forces that have sculpted and driven us into being.
