Martin Parr has been photographing in Ireland for over 4 decades. This extensive documentation - brought together for the first time - reveals the dramatic change the country has seen over the past forty years.
This publication begins with early black and white photography, documenting the Pope’s visit in 1979, as well as traditional aspects of rural life, such as horse fairs and dances. Progressing chronologically, we see McDonald's drive throughs and Dublin markets of the 90s, before the work culminates in gay weddings, gentrification, and start-up companies of 2019.
Beautifully published by Damiani, this hardback book contains 38 b&w photographs and 56 colour photographs by Martin Parr. Introduction by Fintan O'Toole.
