12–23 March 2014
Opening: 6pm Friday 14 March
At The Library Project
4 Temple Bar, Dublin 2, Ireland.
The Saint Patrick’s Festival cultural programme I Love My City present the exhibition and book launch of Eamonn Doyle’s ‘i’. Eamonn has been photographing his fellow Dubliners since the early ‘90s and has developed a unique approach to his street portraiture. Despite the close range muggers-eye-view, the images remain respectful, reverent, almost in awe of the mysterious figures they depict. The photographs give us mere fragments of their subjects’ narratives yet enough to inspire feelings such as kinship and compassion. His photographs suggest that every life has weight and drama, even if its meaning is ultimately elusive.
The exhibition serves as a preview of a more comprehensive one planned to go on tour around Ireland and Europe later in the year.
The limited edition book ‘i ’ will be available to purchase for the duration of the exhibition at a special reduced rate before it goes on general release in April.
