Eric Luke has captured the essence of Irish life over the past forty years, with stunning and thought-provoking images of the people of Ireland for the Irish Press and Irish Times. Whether the subject is a film star or a gaelic football player, a fisherman or an elicit poteen distiller, Luke's talent is in showing a person as they really are.

This collection offers a fascinating insight into day-to-day lifestyle, as well as the cultural and political events, of these years in a country undergoing rapid change. A celebration of the people of Ireland: rural and urban, young and old, famous and unknown.
