From the Editor: When Anthology was launched earlier this year it received a very positive reaction from both readers and advertisers. The vision was to create a lifestyle publication showcasing captivating and informative articles to highlight arts and culture, fashion and beauty, home designs, travel destinations and so much more – in print. And so the journey continues providing visually appealing and intelligent content for the modern reader.
A large section of this issue is dedicated to photography and depicts how this art form has changed over the past hundred years. The featured collections show how images help to preserve history, facilitate communication and move people in ways that words sometimes cannot.
One of Ireland’s great photographic collections by Franz Sebastian Haselbeck, which has been painstakingly catalogued and protected by his granddaughter, Patricia, chronicles an exciting period in Irish history.
Photographs from ‘Women in Dior – Portraits of Elegance’ will transport you through the archives of the atelier and pay tribute to the women who have worn the creations of the house of Dior.
Fine art photographer and digital artist, Alexia Sinclair’s pictures combine the elegant finesse of contemporary fashion design with the sumptuous aesthetics of the Golden Age of painting. Her work is instantly recognisable with her signature found in the intricate creation and assembly of each image.
We are also delighted to showcase a selection of work from some of Ireland’s contemporary artists who introduce us to their varying styles techniques and themes.
I hope you will enjoy these pages as much as we enjoyed putting them together!
