PORTRAIT photographer Shay Hunston unveiled his first large-scale Cork exhibition as his project, ‘People of the Wild Atlantic Way’ will be showcased in Cork Airport throughout the month.
Dublin photographer Hunston who specialises in portrait, fashion and street photography has taken a break from his European assignments to travel the 2,500km coastline from Cork to Donegal to capture images of Irish people along the route.
Hunston began his People of the Wild Atlantic Way project last June, capturing more than 300 images of inspiring faces in West Cork.
Twenty of these images will give rise to his first exhibition in Cork which is sponsored by The Celtic Ross Hotel where the images will be housed for auction after March. On completion of his Wild Atlantic Way journey, Hunston will collate the images in to a book with all proceeds going to the RNLI.
