‘Reflecting 1916’ investigates the photographic legacy of the Easter Rising. It features photographs taken by eyewitnesses to this pivotal period in Ireland’s history. With essays by Luke Gibbons, Orla Fitzpatrick, Brenda Malone, Angus Mitchell and Justin Carville, ‘Reflecting 1916’ is an important contribution to critical debates on photography, memory and identity in Ireland.
