Inspiration; it’s precious stuff. There’s no telling where you may stumble across it. In Dublin earlier this year, I expected to tap into a rich source at a photo exhibition but a bookshop in Dublin was where it really hit me between the eyes in the form of Sebastio Salgado’s Genesis book. As soon as I saw the cover I was inspired and knew I had to add it to burgeoning library of coffee table photography books. Salgado is an inspiration and a reminder if any were needed of the power of black and white. Ever since occasionally I’ve been in a monochromatic frame of mind, hence the black and white image in this post. Thence I came straight back from Dublin and turned my attention to the editing and processing of my images from my recent trip to Tralee with Salgado’s inspiration fuelling my endeavours.
