The history of Cork City is built around the River Lee and the access to the open sea. The Cork Docklands will soon undergo extensive redevelopment and the cityscape will change forever. This is a photographic celebration of Cork Docklands which captures the people and places in its present form.

The Docklands have played a central part in Cork's trading history and, being located in the heart of the city, feature greatly in the lives and memories of the local residents. The book is a visual record of the dockers and stevedores who work the wharfs, the business operators, and the sporting clubs, such as the rowers and the American football players, which use the waterways and fields for recreation.

The photographs have been taken over a year and are a mixture of black and white and colour images. The book is large format containing landscapes, architectural close-ups and detailed studies, but with an emphasis on portraits.

Patrick Cummins is freelance photographer who trained in the Crawford College of Art and Design. He is two times winner in the Australian Nikon Press Photographer Awards.

5 of 5 This truly is a very valuable document. Patrick Cu July 27, 2009
Reviewer: Books Ireland from Republic of Ireland  
This truly is a very valuable document. Patrick Cummins achieves that rare thing in art of seeing with the eye of the insider but producing with the distance of the artist. I would have to heartly recommend this book and I can only hope Cork make a fuss of it.
