Tina Claffey (€29.99)
Uncover the hidden beauty of Ireland’s bogs, wetlands, and eskers with award winning photographer, Tina Claffey’s new book Portal. An immersive visual exploration of Ireland’s last remaining wildernesses, Portal transports readers deep into the otherworldly beauty of the Irish wetland. Using a macro lens, Claffey provides stunning images of the wild creatures and plants that call Ireland’s ancient boglands their home.
From carnivorous plants with their sticky tentacles, sphagnum mosses frozen in time in the deep bog pools and ancient water creatures exploring their depths, a kaleidoscope of colour through dewdrops on the backs of wondrous insects.
Ireland’s bogs and wetlands are a refuge for rare and beautiful plant and animal species with over fifty percent of Europe’s bogland here on our island. Portal captures many of these unique species in stunning detail. On our very own doorstep, is a little-known ethereal beauty waiting to be explored, the glory of Ireland’s bogs.
