‘It’s now forty years since I picked up my first camera, and my journey as a photographer has taken me to some stunning international locations, from the ancient city of Rome to the breathtaking Yosemite National Park, and yet, there is still no place quite like home. Ireland’s wild Atlantic coastline is still my main source of inspiration, and keeps on drawing me back.’ Giles Norman
Giles Norman received his first camera on his eighteenth birthday, and he first photographed the wild Atlantic tides from his parents’ garden in County Cork. 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 this landscape that continues to drive his artistic passion today.
The Giles Norman Gallery, which celebrated its thirtieth anniversary in 2018, is located in an elegant Georgian building on the Main Street of Kinsale, the beautiful coastal town that marks the beginning of the Wild Atlantic Way.
