Leo O Connor is the CEO of Súileir, a gallery of primarily photographic images, covering many aspects of life in modern Ireland. To mark the 100th Anniversary of the publication of James Joyce’s Ulysses, Súileir invited the Dublin photographer to re-visit the novel and see if he could find parallels with contempory Dublin. The result is a book of exceptional pictures portraying the women in Ulysses with an original and distinctive interpretation. Súileir is proud to have published a book with such unique and exclusive work for your enjoyment
