Following on from his celebrated trilogy of Dublin street photographs, Eamonn Doyle’s new work moves away to the western Atlantic edge of Ireland, 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. This work functions, in part, as a lament for Doyle’s late brother and mother. Sample images.
The current political ferment in the US has guaranteed that Andrew Moisey’s The American Fraternity has had considerable media coverage in advance of publication. The fraternities are male-only groups that thrive on many college campuses and are associated with arcane rituals, excessive alcohol consumption and misogyny. Moisey combines his own photographs of fraternities with scanned pages from a wax-stained 60 year old ritual manual. This book will shed new light on the peculiarities of the fraternal orders which count seventy-five percent of modern U.S. presidents, senators, justices, and executives among their members.
