‘Dublin Streets’ is a new exhibition and book capturing real Dubliners over the course of eight years, to be shown at Hang Tough Contemporary.
On September 1, Irish director Lorcan Finnegan is launching a new photo-book and exhibition entitled ‘Dublin Streets.’
‘Dublin Streets’ is an ongoing project, conceived as Finnegan wandered the streets of Dublin, chronicling the city’s unique charisma through candid profiles of the local people. The project was born out of Finnegan’s love for the kind of drama that tends to play out in the city center culminating in a brutally honest portrait of Dublin. Shot between 2012 and 2018, the series features 28 candid photographs and street scenes.
Finnegan is known for his work as a film director including Vivarium in 2019 starring Jesse Eisenberg and Imogen Poots as a couple trapped in a supernatural parent-cage with an extraterrestrial baby. His next film Nocebo follows an out-of-sorts fashion designer who seeks help from a traditional folk healer before things take a dark turn.
However, the director cut his teeth on photography with his first photobook Granny Fashion and produced work featured in Time Magazine. ‘Dublin Streets’ is his first show in Ireland and will run in Hang Tough until September 18th.
