About Sean Sexton: Born in Co Clare in 1946, Sean Sexton emigrated to London, where in 1973 he acquired his first Irish historical photographs. His collection is still growing and now includes over 20,000 images, documenting every aspect of Ireland’s past and illustrating the development of the photographic art form. His books include ‘Ireland – photographs 1840-1930, introduction by J.J. Lee (1994); ‘The Plant Kingdoms of Charles Jones’ (with Robert Flynn Johnson) (1998); and ‘The Irish’ Introduction by Christine Kinealy (2002).
