Orla Fitzpatrick: The Photobook in Ireland

LCGALimerick City Gallery of Art, Carnegie Building, Pery Square, Limerick
Date: 12noon Thu 18 Jul

Book Magazine Fair

Until recently, the photographic monograph received little attention within traditional histories of photography despite being one of the most important transmitters of the medium. This presentation will examine photographic publishing within the Irish context and how it has developed from the nineteenth century up to 1990. Key examples will be discussed in terms of their design, production and influence.

Orla Fitzpatrick is a PhD researcher in the University of Ulster.
