The Light of Ireland For over three decades Tim Baskerville has been travelling to Ireland to photograph, and to lead Photo Tours in the West of Ireland. From a relatively routine sign-up as a participant in a two-week Workshop in the 1980s to the current Photo Tours Baskerville conducts throughout County Mayo, he has returned again and again to capture the timeless beauty, the unspoiled villages, rugged ancient abbeys, and the dramatic coastline of Western Ireland. Join him in a virtual Tour of this enchanted Emerald Isle, Thursday, June 30, 6:30–8pm; as he directs our gaze to see beyond the unrivaled beauty of the landscape, to venture out past the intersection where the land collides with the built environment; further still to where our ancestors reside in-time, within the land they loved – to a true “timescape,” This special presentation, made for Viewpoint Member Night, offers not only stunning imagery from the West of Ireland: Counties Mayo (where Tim’s ancestral roots are), Sligo, and Galway; but also includes work done at various times in County Cork and in Dublin as well.
