The Saint Patrick’s festival cultural programme I Love My City, present the exhibition and book launch of Eamonn Doyle’s ‘i’ photographic project. This will be a preview of a more comprehensive exhibition which will go on tour around Ireland and Europe later in the year.

The Exhibition

Eamonn Doyle has been photographing his fellow Dubliners since the early ‘90s and has developed a unique approach to his street portraiture. Despite the close range muggers-eye-view, the images remain respectful, reverent, almost in awe of the mysterious figures they depict. The photographs give us mere fragments of their subjects’ narratives yet enough to inspire feelings such as kinship and compassion. His photographs suggest that every life has weight and drama, even if its meaning is ultimately elusive.

The limited edition book ‘i ’ will be available to purchase for the duration of the exhibition at a special reduced rate before it goes on general release in April.

Artist Biography

Although he has worked as a commercial photographer since 1995, he spent much of the past twenty years working in the independent music business, founding the Dublin Electronic Arts Festival (DEAF) alongside the highly respected record label D1 Recordings.

He returned to photography in 2008, employing a 10x8 view camera and 35mm rangefinder cameras. His book State Visit was self-published in 2012 to commemorate the visit of Queen Elizabeth II to Ireland.
