They are joined by Dr Fidelma Mullane, curator of the upcoming exhibition Henri Cartier-Bresson and Ireland which will go on display at the National Museum at Collins Barracks in the autumn 2019.

Each speaker will be invited to make a 20 minute illustrated presentation on thier work, which will be followed by a Q&A session. Admission Free.

Belt Up - Gregory Dunn

Gregory Dunn is a self-taught photographer and filmmaker. Born in London, Dunn has lived in Dublin since 1990. In 2012 his project Play Stations, both a document and appraisal of the nature of children’s play, was exhibited at the Irish Museum of Modern Art. Dunn’s first book, Here: A Photographic Record, a look at Dublin during the last economic recession, was published in 2017. His latest book, entitled Portrayed has just been released.


Dr Fidelma Mullane is a leading authority on vernacular culture and holds an MA from NUI Galway and a PhD from the Sorbonne on the subject. She currently works on the study and conservation of vernacular practices. She has particular expertise in early colour photography and has curated a number of important exhibitions on the topic. At present, she is preparing a photographic exhibition that will include a substantial number of Cartier-Bresson images taken in Ireland during his visits in 1952 and 1962. The exhibition is due to open at the National Museum of Ireland – Decorative Arts & History, Collins Barracks in Autumn 2019.


Andy Sheridan is an architect and self-taught photographer, based in Dublin. Sheridan’s work focuses primarily on the built environment, in all its forms - from the first ancient field patterns laid down by our distant ancestors to contemporary architectural projects constructed by our peers. Sheridan has a huge interest in the development of settlements over time and frequently includes historical maps within his posts to indicate the context of his subject matter.
