The Mystical Isle

Ron Smid’s The Mystical Isle

When Ron first visited Ireland in 2012, he fell in love with the rugged West coast that so much reminded him of his travels to Newfoundland.

Project description

In 2014, Ron dedicated five weeks to an expedition that would take him across 4 000 km between Northern Donegal and the Beara peninsula, in County Cork. The purpose of this journey was to capture the primordial spirit of the Irish landscape on 8×10″ black and white film.

Photographs in this portfolio are available as limited edition, hand-printed silver gelatin prints, mounted on acid-free matte board. Each print is selenium toned to extend its lifespan to over 200 years.

Every photograph is signed and numbered by the artist, and is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
