Can you help? I saw this photo in the Regency Hotel [Swords Road, Dublin] and no one [at the hotel] knows who the photographer is. My da is in the photo [arrowed] and it would mean the world to get a copy of it, if anyone knows where I could get a copy it would mean the world to me.
Meet fashion photographer Conor Clinch, aged 17, from Coolock.

Thanks Fresh Prince of Kildare
I’ve gotten back to everyone now. It was shot on my iPhone, so it’s still not really high res but I’ve attached a high-res version. If anyone wants this just send a request to Broadsheet@broadsheet.ie.

Photographer Eamonn Farrell and the women featured in his now controversial exhibition Elements of Nature at Filmbase, Temple Bar, Dublin until October 26.
We did try to explain it was art.
But would YOU listen?

Eamonn (who also runs the Photocall Ireland agency) writes:
“My work, by contrasting the texture and form of the female body, shorn of clothing and the trappings of technological gizmos, with that of our natural world, is intended to remind us of our vulnerability, as well as our strenghts as a species. And reinforce the fact that we need and will not survive without planet Earth, but it will happily live on without us.”
Phoarr. Bewbs. Hard core. And so forth.
Name those locations (above) anyone?
Images from the Irish women’s movement by Rose Comiskey part of an exhibition entitled Against The Tide, at the Avenue Road Gallery, Portobello, Dublin in association with PhotoIreland Festival 2013.
The exhibition is photographic record of the “campaign for reproductive rights in Ireland in the 1980s” and the passing of the 1992 amendment to the Irish Constitution.
Images 1 and 3 are from a right to know march in Dublin c1985. It was illegal to publish any information on abortion and English magazines and newspapers were censored as they came into the country….Image 2 is of a protest puppet – a judge – one of two. The other was a bishop puppet… and Image 4 is from an event in 1992 after the X Case when hundreds of women went to Holyhead on the ferry for the purpose of bringing back information on abortion.
