August 3 – October 8, 2017
J. Wayne Stark Galleries
From the earliest photographs taken in the 1850s to the advent of the digital era in the early 1990s, these images reveal details about how people lived, worked, and gathered that official historical records may have overlooked. Taken as a whole, this collection of more than 120 photographs creates a rich tapestry of images that tells of the triumphs and turmoils in the life of a nation. A Photo Album of Ireland presents the people’s account of history that is at once personal and powerful.
This exhibition was organized with support from Culture Ireland’s International Culture Programme to celebrate Ireland 2016. It was curated by the Gallery of Photography, Dublin, and organized by ExhibitsUSA in partnership with Culture Ireland.
