by Klaus Francke
These aerial photographs of Ireland are astoundingly beautiful. They reveal an immense and unsuspected wealth of colour hidden behind Ireland’s green facade – yellow islands of gorse, the turquoise edges of the western coast, the algae borders of the winter lakes varying in colour from green to orange, deserted islands overgrown with rust brown ferns and the deserts of black peat bogs. Quite simply they are a revelation.
Klaus Francke originally trained as an architect but practised for only nine years before turning to photography. A founding member of the Bilderberg Photo Agency in Hamburg, he has published more than ten books.
