Martin Parr's Ireland: photographs 1979-2019

Viewed by many as the essential English photographer, Martin Parr has actually had a long relationship with Ireland. Between 1980 and 1982 Parr came to live in Ireland, making his home in Boyle, County Roscommon. During this time he photographed extensively in the West of Ireland.

Since then, he has made many return visits, turning his incisive lens on the rapidly transforming landscape of Irish life, charting the abrupt shift from Catholic novenas and country fairs to tech start-ups and café lattes. 

This exhibition is accompanied by the extensive new publication with an illuminating text by Fintan O’Toole: 'From the Pope to a Flat White, Ireland 1979 - 2019' available from the Gallery of Photography Ireland's bookshop.
