Abandoned Mansions of Ireland—images captured by Tarquin Blake—is a photographic project spanning three years of research and documentation. The pictures of ruined big houses are from Blake’s bestselling and critically acclaimed book of the same name.
The blurb says: “Blake documents the end of the landed aristocracy in Ireland and the demise of their country mansions. His beautiful, haunting, images of crumbling ruins convey an indefinable beauty. The images are accompanied by history and folklore, telling of troubled times and private hardship.”
It sounds great so I’m definitely going to check it out. For a taster of his work, there are samples at www.AbandonedIreland.com.
