    Irish Photographers You Like?

    Who are your favorite Irish photographers, or just well know Irish Photographers

    They can be living or passed away. Post a link to their web site if they have one. I'm asking because to be honest I don't now that many and feel I should

    I'll start with:
    1) Fergus Burke
    2) Bill Doyle

    Any more?

    Not sure if Jill Freedman is Irish but she published a magical book named "A Time That Was" If you find this out of print book I'm sure you'll enjoy it. URL is...

    Me, though I'm probably 4 generations removed from my Irish roots. Grin.

    Whose your favorite Iranian photographer?
    When I grow up, I want to be a photographer.

    Martin I'm not sure this is worthwhile tread as I believe Irish people are more masters of words, songs and stories than practitioners of the visual arts. Of course this is changing as time moves on, but as yet I think that it is too early to pick people as great photographers.

    Cheers

    Vincent :-) I'm not looking for masters or great Irish photographers. Just looking for Irish photographers that people like because to be honest I don't really know any.

    I really enjoy looking at good photography taken in Ireland of Irish landscapes and Irish people. I find it hard to find any good quality stuff on the web to be honest.

    Was hoping some names would help to find some sites or pages. It doesn't have to be anyone famous or anything it could be just your friend Bob in the camera club and you like the work he/she does. Basically just names or links to Irish photographers that people enjoy looking at

    All the best

    Interesting thread Martin, while there are many photographs by different photographers that I greatly admire there are few photographers that I would call myself a fan of.

    For your research purposes here is a link to a print raffle and exhibition which features plenty of 'names' for you to google

    My two cents. I'm rather fond of Father Brown, perhaps more for nostalgia reasons than anything, but I do like his work and the era he captured. In a more modern vein, though, I like George Tice very much and I put him here because his mother was a member of the Traveling Community from UK/Ireland. Also, 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. Like I said, two cents worth from Africa.
