Dublin’s DNA


Dublin in the late 1960s and early 1970s by Bill Hastings.

Looking at this artwork, one does not get a sense of loss, sentimentality or nostalgia for something that has gone simply because this volume of work manages to capture its essence, its DNA and our instincts respond to that memory, that fabric, those laughing, smiling, playing, citizens of Dublin.”

Conor McAndrew writes:

For anyone in Dublin this week, a projection exhibition of a collection of Bill Hastings’ photographs will run every night from 5 pm – 11 pm on the modern building at Bernardo Square, City Hall Dublin. The exhibition runs as part of the Othered Voices programme of Temple Bar Tradfest.
