About Patrick Carey: Landscape Artist
Patrick Carey (1916–1994) was a prolific Irish filmmaker of considerable renown. As a camera operator, he worked on international features including A Man for All Seasons and Barry Lyndon, but it was in the short form documentary that his remarkable skill as cinematographer and director was fully realised. His passion lay in the natural environment which he approached with awe, meticulousness and endless patience to create films that were supremely assured in their simplicity, and which garnered two Oscar nominations.
