Waking LightKerri ní Dochartaigh, Mícheál McCann
Through poetry, imagery and lyric prose, writers Kerri ní Dochartaigh and Mícheál McCann in collaboration with photographer Michelle Moloney explore the seeds of beginnings and endings, and the search for places where we find ourselves and each other. Filled with hope and elegy, these evocative reflections offer a measure of grace, solace and renewal.

To encounter this collaboration – weaving word and image into such a singular object – felt to me like catching a brief snatch of birdsong on the wind, four distinct artistic voices rising in unison, pure and clear. Beautiful.
