Renowned Irish photographer, Giles Norman, received his first camera forty years ago on his 18th birthday, and it was from his parents’ garden in Co. Cork that he first photographed the wild Atlantic tides. His vast portfolio travels beyond the Irish shores, but it was Ireland’s dramatic coastline that first inspired Giles to become a photographer, and it’s the landscape that continues to drive his artistic passion today.

Through this stunning collection of black and white images, Giles takes you on a journey along Ireland’s west coast, travelling from Kinsale in the south up to Donegal in the north. This beautiful hardback edition, featuring over 130 photographs, captures the contrasting textures and tones of this breathtaking coastline. Discover the spectacular treasures of this 2,500km trail through Giles Norman’s lens, from intimate coastal inlets to towering cliffs and windswept beaches, and explore the endless beauty that the Wild Atlantic Way has to offer.

Giles Norman is a photographer renowned for his atmospheric and arresting of black and white images. His extensive body of work ranges from dramatic landscapes to bold abstracts and timeless singular images. Giles has also travelled beyond the wild Irish shores, capturing contemporary scenes from the world’s greatest cities. His photographic career began in the early 1980s with a small darkroom in the beautiful town of Kinsale. Both locals and tourists flocked to the tiny window of his studio, and this curiosity encouraged Giles to open his first gallery in 1988, since when his reputation has steadily grown.
