About this event

Photo Museum Ireland is delighted to present the world premiere of The Memories of Others exhibition, photobook and film on the Irish work of Japanese photographer Akihiko Okamura.

From the late 1960s to the early 1980s, renowned Japanese war photographer Akihiko Okamura (1929-1985) created a remarkable, compelling and largely unseen body of work in Ireland. This exhibition also launches a major programme which include a documentary film and the first publication on Okamura’s Irish work. After covering the Vietnam War, Akihiko Okamura went to Ireland in 1968 to visit the country of JFK’s ancestors. Soon after, in 1969, he decided to move to Ireland with his family. From then on, he continually photographed the Troubles in the North and his life with his family in the South.
