British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Online talk: Irish Photography Since 1839 / 17 August 2021

William Fagan's illustrated online talk will celebrate the ongoing development of a new, interactive timeline of the history of photography in Ireland which is being developed by the Gallery of Photography, Ireland. He will share some of the key images in Ireland's photographic history and explore the stories behind them. Considering photography both as an art and a science, he will look at who took photographs and why they took them and how photography was used for good and otherwise, including some early examples of photographic 'fake news'.

He will also look at how photography has impacted on Ireland's visual knowledge and culture and will end at the present where everyone is now a photographer of some kind.
