Our Reflecting 1916 exhibition feature photographs drawn from leading archives and museums together with photographs from our Photo Album of Ireland research project. Exhibition continues until 8 May 2016.
The Photo Album of Ireland is a digital research project inviting people to digitally share their family albums and private photo collections. Photo albums give a fascinating insight into our public and private histories, revealing details about how people lived and worked that official historical records often overlook. This emerging, democratic archive explores the role photography plays in recording our lives and commemorating our histories – viewed from the perspective of private individuals and families. The project explores themes of identity, changing social conditions, emigration and effects of conflict – preserving this important cultural material for future generations.
