Elis Taves is a well-known Brazilian photographer with a special interest in Ireland. During 2003, she came to Ireland to further develop her photography skills. While here, her exhibition ‘Celebrating Easter in Brazil’ was held in the Chapel of Trinity College sponsored by the Brazilian Embassy and The Chaplaincy of Trinity College.
On returning to Brazil, her exhibition “Ireland” was held in the Irish Embassy, Brasilia. In 2005, she came back to launch her book, City of Children, at Oscar Wilde House, The American College.
Elis is now back in Ireland, living in Bray, working on her new project focused on Irish women,“Behind the Eyes”.
We are looking forward to seeing her wonderful photographs of Brazil.

Chaos and Harmony
Chaos and Harmony, formerly Song Circle, is a natural voice workshop which meets weekly in Greystones for the sheer joy of singing together. Led by Eileen and Anna, the group will perform a selection of inspiring music and, as a special treat, they will be joined on the night by Eleanor Dawson, an exceptional flautist. Eleanor's unique presentation includes various flutes and their music down through the ages. Chaos and Harmony always welcome new members to their group.
Sean Olohan and Simon Keogh have been very busy. They had a top 10 hit in the Irish and download charts with their song ‘Saving Lives’ in aid of the RNLI. Since their last visit, they have toured Switzerland twice, releasing 2 songs there. Sean’s recent compositions include songs about local heroes: Charles Barrington, a Bray man who was the first to climb the Eiger mountain in Switzerland, and Wicklow Town’s Robert Halpin, whose claim to fame was the laying of undersea cables. Both these songs are in their final editing. Later this month, the 2 lads will perform at an International Festival in France which will coincide with the release of another new song ‘A French Connection’, to celebrate Wicklow Town’s twinning with Montigney. Always a pleasure to hear them perform.
