About this Event

WHY ATTEND

"Minihan’s gift is to be at once penetrating and discreet, probing and respectful, close-up and impersonal.” - John Banville

In this engaging talk, Minihan shares his insights about his; works, influences, love of black and white photos, the essence of good photography and, what interests him now.

Minihan (born 1946 and now a west cork resident), he was born in Dublin and raised in Athy before moving to London at the age of 12. By 21 he had become the youngest staff photographer for the Evening Standard. In between documenting Athy on visits to home he continued for 30 years as a fleet street photographer.

He is one of Ireland’s most celebrated photographers famous for his iconic portraits and landscapes; Lady Diana Spencer, Samuel Beckett , W.H Auden, Seamus Heany, Francis Bacon, Lucien Freud, Enda O Brien, Patti Smith David Hockney…and the list goes on, in a career spanning 55 years. William Burrows once described him as a 'painless photographer.'

Minihan close relationship with the titans of the art and literary world makes compelling listening.

A number of his iconic images will be on display at the Gallery. All Images © John Minihan courtesy of UCC.
