Dublin Bay – City By The Sea

Father and daughter team Seán and Niamh Kennedy present the splendour and diversity of Dublin Bay in all its glory in this wonderful new photographic collection.

Dublin Bay – City By The Sea features a cornucopia of images that capture the beauty of the bay and its environs; from Howth Head in the North to Dalkey Island in the South and all places in between.
Much of the scenery presented will be familiar to everyone who has lived in or visited the capital – landscapes and marks such as the sweep of Killiney Bay, the sunset skyline of Dublin Port, the Poolbeg Chimney stacks, the Bailey Lighthouse and Joyce’s Martello Tower.

Others offer surprise, with secret nooks and crannies and remarkable perspectives on every other page.
Seán is a well-known Dublin photographer who has a particular interest in street and landscape photography. He has lived in Sandymount, since he moved there from his native Boyle in 1984, which fostered his great appreciation for the beauty of Dublin Bay.

His photographic work has attained international recognition from the Fédération Internationale de l’Art Photographique (EFIAP), a worldwide organisation representing photographic art. In 1993 he was elected Artist FIAP (AFIAP), and in 1997 he was awarded Excellence FIAP (EFIAP.)
Seán has exhibited both nationally and internationally and has been an active member of the Dublin Camera Club since 1983 and is a past president.

Niamh grew up in Sandymount, with the iconic Poolbeg Chimneys as a backdrop and Sandymount Strand and its surrounds as her playground. She is a keen walker and occasional cyclist and relished the opportunity to explore the Bay by both modes while writing the text for this project.
