Come Journey to the Magical Celtic Islands of Ireland and Scotland!

EXPERIENCE ANOTHER WORLD! Join award-winning photographer Josef Tornick in an enchanting tour of the Aran Islands of Ireland, and the Outer Hebrides of Scotland, via over 80 stunningly beautiful fine-art Black and White Photographs.

The images of Ireland bring to you to places that deeply impress upon the spirit: the Holy Well of Inisheer; the ruins of little churches over a thousand years old; the endless miles of stone walls enclosing tiny plots of handmade pasture; the great banks of clouds illuminated by great flourishes of streaming, shifting light; the turbulent Atlantic Ocean encircling these islands; and the quietly dignified manner of the Gaelic-speaking villagers, who embody a world of timeless connection to the weather, the landscape, and tradition…

The photos of the remote Western Isles of Scotland depict sparse and ancient lands of rich and subtle beauty: cloud-wrapped mountains, lochs (lakes), long and empty beaches with machair (beach grass), extensive and unique wildlife, fierce winds, and moody, ever-changing weather.

The people in these photographs are proud of their heritage, and reserved, as were their ancestors; yet they kindly opened both their hearts and homes to this photographer, allowing me extraordinary access in recording their way of life. I hope that I have done them justice in recording their timeless “Tir a’Muhrain” (Land of Bent Grass), and “Arainn”, the Irish islands of Inisheer and Inishman — with photographs that illustrate and evoke the beauty of cultures deeply interwoven with memory, community and environment.

In a world that often seems chaotic and lost from its moorings, it is of immense value to have the opportunity to observe, reflect upon, and experience these traditional ways of life that all too often are lost, overlooked or devalued by contemporary culture.

May you also experience moments of this magic through this special and heart-felt photographic journey.

Magical Celtic Islands is based on the concept and design of Drainspotting Extras, by award-winning photographer and artist Remo Camerota of Whitewall Studios. Thanks to Remo for letting me use his ideas to create my own.

Just a few of the unsolicited comments recently received……..

“Wow! Just amazing photography. The Hebrides shots are fantastic.”

“I have been looking at your images, haven't seen all that are posted yet, but I think they are just fabulous. The monochrome is stunning…”

“Your photo is brilliant and really captures Duncan: he looks like he owns the place but more than that, he is part of the landscape.”

“I really was moved by your images in Lenswork and have looked at them many times since then.”

“I was pleased to see your images from Scotland. I spent several months reading up on Stiglitz, Steichen and Strand, and must say that you have the spirit, but you also have your own vision. Congrats on a fine series.”

“Saw your photos in LensWork. I have an affinity for Scotland. Being a photographer, influenced by Paul Strand and having traveled to South Uist many times, I must say your photographs are absolutely beautiful. Thank you for all of your hard work to document such a wonderful place.”

“Bravo! I greatly enjoyed viewing your Scotland prints. They are simply brilliant. You did a fine job with the portraits and the landscapes. I believe it is the rare photographer who does both well. You are such a photographer.”

“The way you see landscapes penetrates deep… I see a total mastery of landscapes.”

“My wish is that many collectors will discover your work over the next years, and give it the support that it definitely deserves -I consider you a brilliant photographer.”
