Launch: 6pm Thursday, 25 October
Shane Lynam‘s long-awaited book is finally here! Join The Library Project for the launch of Fifty High Seasons, accompanied by an installation where visitors can get a visual sense of Shane’s work process.
Mission Racine was a regional housing plan launched in France in the 1960’s, involving the construction of a series of innovative resort towns along the coast between Montpellier and Perpignan. Shane Lynam takes this idea as his starting point and adds his own lyrical stamp to create a semi-fictional space that is best seen and experienced in the book form. Shot over seven years, the resulting images are a reflection on the history and psychology of public space and the photographer’s affection for the towns involved.
