William Fagan’s illustrated talk celebrates the ongoing development of a new, interactive timeline of the history of photography in Ireland. He will share some of the key images in Ireland’s photo history and explore the stories behind them. Considering photography both as an art and a science, he will look at who took photographs and why they took them, and how photography was used for good and otherwise, including some early examples of fake news. He will also look at how photography has impacted on our visual knowledge and culture and will end at the present where everyone is now a photographer of some kind.
