American landscape photographer David J Eisenlord (Ike to his friends) gave a presentation of his superb images to the club on Monday night last, 09 February. Ike is in Ireland for a month as Artist in Residence in the Sirius Arts Centre, Cobh, for February. Ike spoke passionately about his photography, and brought along a selection of his Platinum Palladium prints for the audience to view.
Ike was joined on the night by his father and Peggy Sue Amison, Artistic Director of the Sirius Arts Centre, who is herself an accomplished photographer. Peggy Sue gave a brief overview of the Sirius Arts Centre, and the Artist in Residence programme. A number of visitors from adjoining clubs also braved the cold to join us on the night.
At the end of his presentation Ike invited the audience up to take a close look at his prints. He also presented one of the prints to the club for our collection. Club Chairman Paddy Fennessy thanked David for this wonderful gesture.
