Presentation by Thames & Hudson:
" Dublin has captured countless imaginations and inspired some of the greatest artists and writers throughout history. Focused on D1, Dublin's city center, photographer Eamonn Doyle's three major bodies of work, « i », « ON » and « END » all initially self-published and brought together here, tell the tale of today's Dublin and, in doing so, tell a broader story of today's Ireland.
Doyle's street photography is a thrill to the system, revealing the extraordinary within the ordinary to paint a striking portrait of a modern and multicultural capital city. Reproduced in vivid color, the commonplace is seen anew and made epic as the city's inhabitants appear in stark, black and white going about their daily business. Doyle's work features everyday life through the lens and voice of the street. Punctuating Doyle's photography are specially commissioned narratives by celebrated writer Kevin Barry, evoking the sights, smells, sounds, and sensations of a Dubliner's daily life.
« While photographing, I began to strip away as much of the context and background from the subjects as I could. The subjects are all shot at close range, but respectfully, perhaps even reverently. The pictures show only fragments of possible narratives, but for me, every life has weight and drama, even if its meaning is ultimately elusive. »
