Selected as one of the Best Books of 2014 by Martin Parr, Tom Claxton
"Street photography is one of the most difficult genres to find a new vision within. From time to time a photographer finds a voice and makes an original contribution to this development, and often a book celebrates that achievement. When this book by Eamonn Doyle arrived at my doorstep I was quite taken aback. This unknown photographer had shot on the streets of Dublin, often from behind the subjects, and produced a most lyrical set of photographs and a wonderful book." - Martin Parr
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.
"An important new contribution to the genre of street photography." Martin Parr
