‘Here Comes Everybody’ is a phrase that echoes through James Joyce’s Finnegans Wake. It aptly captures the intense poetry of this new collection, taken over repeated trips to Ireland between 1993 and 2005 on each of which Killip attended the annual pilgrimages at Croagh Patrick and Máméan, places of wild beauty and ancient spirituality.

His poignant photographs are a personal reflection on the contemporary pilgrims’ journey, and are complemented by landscapes, townscapes and details photographed in the west of Ireland and beyond. They include the first colour photographs Chris Killip has ever published.
