    Nude Playwright!

    George Bernard Shaw was a wonderful writer but also a very keen amatuer photographer. Bill Jay edited a book on his writings on photography which is worth looking out for. He was very keen on nude self portaits! GBS was way ahead of his times.

    Thanks for this link, this lady has done a lot of work on Ireland. I had not heard about her work, from what I have found on the net she sounds very interesting . I have found the book you recommend and ordered it.

    Michael mentioned
    "Alan MacWeeney (who I blieve is Dublin-born) is one of my faves, especially his work on Travellers/"Tinkers". This project resulted in one of his better-known books."

    This book is called "Irish Travellers" and has some of the best Irish Photography I have seen. Book is a real quality production. I have seen it in Hodges Dawson St

    Donovan Wylie is another favourite, he should be on the Magnum site. Watchtowers and The Maze are his most recent books.


    Bill Doyle was mentioned earlier, a lot of his work was for the Irish Tourist Board and a lot of the images look staged aand commercial in the tourist sense. Veritas did produce a book of colour photographs called Island Funeral which I would recommend.

    Chris Killip will have a new book out next year about Ireland. I dont know whats going to be in it but he has done a lot of work on Croagh Patrick in recent years.

    And finally Under the "granny rule" we could claim Michael Kenna as his parents were Irish.

    Thanks for all the names and links all I appreciate it. Should keep me busy for a while searching around the web for the names you gave me. Will go into Hodges on Dawson St tomorrow and pick up the book "Irish Travellers" if its there as I was told about it before so should pick it up

    Thanks again all much appreciated

    How about Phil Pankov?

    Although strictly speaking, I believe he's originally from Moscow, but in Dublin now.

    Plus I think he's on APUG as well.

    Phil has departed Ireland to try his luck in the US. We in the DCC will miss his talent and his charm.

    I stuck a few quid down on one of his prints in the Gallery Of Photography raffle a few weeks ago. It was really nice. Didn't win it though

    Currently working I will go with Simon Burch, Mike O'Toole, and Mike Bunn. Yes the are working commercial photographers but there personal work is incredible. They are completely off the radar because they don't exhibit or publish but they are Wonderful. I also have to say I think Robert Ballagh is VERY underrated as a photographer.
