S Baxter self portrait

Moving home to Ireland in 2008.

My photographs aim to capture the essence of the Irish people, lands, culture and history.

Irish people are friendly and welcoming, some with a ruddy complexion working on the land and others with delicate and beautiful porcelain pallor.

The landscape is extremely diverse, from its wet bog lands to mountainous regions of Connemara where the Atlantic meets the coast of Ireland.

 I’m based on the border of Roscommon and Mayo, travelling to all counties of Ireland.

 After taking photos for over 40 years I have lost none of my passion for photography,

“Each photograph is a moment captured in time” when the shutter closes it becomes a precious GAELIC MEMORY.
