‘Growing up, I always felt that the only place to find adventure would be outside this island. I wanted to explore, to see new places, to have new experiences. And that’s exactly what I did. However, a recurring conversation began to follow me — the further I went, and the more people I met, the more I was told what a beautiful, unique, and idyllic place Ireland was. To them, Ireland represented the exact type of adventure that I was travelling to find.
This project was born from a desire to explore and know my home. To find the Ireland that I hadn’t experienced. In order to achieve this, I walked each and every one of the National Waymarked Trails of Ireland. These trails, 42 in total, rambled through 25 counties, and encompassed a combined distance of over 4,000km. The photographs and reflections selected for this publication are a sample of the work created from this ongoing project.’ – Ellie Berry
About The Artist
Ellie Berry is a visual artist and writer living in Ireland. Her work focuses on outdoor experiences, often exploring the landscape and the connections found there. This is primarily through walking: sometimes hiking through remote areas for days or weeks at a time, sometimes it is the small steps through familiar places, but seen anew.
About the Series
