Vintage Clips: The Irish Romance of Mike Bunn

Photo District News, 1992

At a time when interest in Irish cuisine, fashion and art was enjoying a renaissance, I visited with photographer Mike Bunn, who was bringing the three together in his ethereal images. He had recently published his first book, Ireland: The Taste and the Country, and was regularly shooting up-and-coming Irish designers and artists. Within a few years the Irish economy would become the Celtic Tiger of the European Union, but when we met, Eire was still on the cusp between the dewy twilight of Yeats' vision and the modern economic leader of the late 90s. Check out Bunn's work on his Facebook page.
