by E.E. O’Donnell. The author, who is the curator of the Father Browne archives once again presents a unique maritime record and memoir by one of the 20th century’s great photographers. Famed as the photographer of Titanic, Father Browne’s personal album became in the 1990s, a Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller.
This new selection is a volume of maritime images complimentary to the Titanic album that records and reveals the photographer’s deep love of sea travel, and his understanding of the historical and cultural significance of the world of ships. The photographs range from portraits and details of the great ships to cameos of real life aboard including passengers’ social life to assorted work activities of the mariners themselves.
Ships & Shipping is a powerful maritime narrative ranging across the wonderful Irish, French, Australian and other fascinating seascapes and the world of ships.
