A Photo Album of Ireland opens on Saturday, January 26, 2019 at the Temecula Valley Museum. This touring exhibition is a celebration of ordinary and extraordinary histories, viewed from the perspective of private individuals and families. These images reveal details about how the people of Ireland lived, worked, and gathered. The exhibit will be on display in the second-floor gallery at the museum from January 26, 2019 to March 17, 2019.
This collection of more than 120 photographs creates a rich tapestry of images that tells of the triumphs and turmoils in the life of a nation. From photographs of pastoral picnics, holiday celebrations, and parlor portraits to snapshots documenting the impact of the troubles in the North; from joyful wedding parties to solemn funeral processions; A Photo Album of Ireland presents the people’s account of history that is both personal and powerful.
This exhibition was created by the Gallery of Photography, Dublin, and organized by ExhibitsUSA in partnership with Culture Ireland.
