"The Remarkable Books on Harry Clarke's Stained Glass

Stained Glass Photography : Dark Beauty: Hidden Detail in Harry Clarke’s Stained Glass Lucy Costigan and Michael CullenWelcome to my world of stained glass photography! I am an experienced photographer specialising in capturing the mesmerizing beauty of stained glass art.”

My passion for stained glass led me to publish two remarkable books dedicated to the extraordinary talent of Harry Clarke. In 2019, “Dark Beauty: Hidden Detail in Harry Clarke’s Stained Glass” was published by Irish Academic Press, showcasing the intricate details and hidden nuances in Clarke’s masterpieces. In 2010, “Strangest Genius: The Stained Glass of Harry Clarke” was published by Irish History Press, a captivating exploration of Clarke’s genius. This book received prestigious recognition, being shortlisted for Best Irish-Published Book of the year at the Irish Book Awards in 2010 and for Book of the Decade by Dublin Book Festival in 2016.

My stained glass images have garnered international acclaim, with publications featuring my work in newspapers, magazines, and art publications worldwide. The sheer diversity and global reach of these publications testify to the universal appeal and timeless allure of stained glass art.

In addition to my publications and photography projects, I have had the privilege of collaborating with the Irish government on various stained glass initiatives here in Ireland. Through these collaborations, I have contributed to the preservation and celebration of Ireland’s rich stained glass heritage. I have taken stained glass images in Ireland, England, USA, New Zealand and Australia.

If you have any inquiries regarding my work, publications, or potential collaborations, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I look forward to sharing the captivating world of stained glass with you.
