Join photographers and curators, including internationally renowned Irish photographer John Minihan, for An Outsider’s Eye: Photographing 1950s Ireland: A special panel discussion at the National Museum of Ireland – Decorative Arts & History, Collins Barracks on Saturday 15th of February, to discuss the photography of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Dorothea Lange and others, in Ireland.
Join the National Museum of Ireland for an afternoon of talks and conversation, inspired by the Ireland in Focus: Photographing the 1950s exhibition. This exhibition looks at rarely shown images from Henri Cartier-Bresson, Dorothea Lange, and Robert Cresswell, created during what is generally regarded as one of the most challenging decades in twentieth-century Ireland.
This seminar brings the curator of the exhibition Dr Fidelma Mullane, together with Dr Orla Fitzpatrick, Dr. Dragana Jurišić and John Minihan to explore the Ireland of the 1950s that was depicted by Henri Cartier Bresson, Dorothea Lange and Robert Cresswell. The panel discussion, chaired by curator Valerie Connor, will also look at the photographer as an outsider and the relationship between the subject and the photographer.
