Arthur Fields in O’Connell Street, Dublin in the 1980s
Snapper Arthur Fields.
A life of selfie sacrifice.

I thought you might like a great documentary that was on RTE over the Christmas holidays. I was involved in the project in the early stages when it was just an online photo collection project (ManOnBridge). It has since turned into a fantastic documentary which I can say because I wasn’t involved in the production.
It tells the the story of Arthur Fields who worked as a street photographer in Dublin every day for 50 years. The documentary shows that the “man on the bridge” was a complex and unusual man. And it’s on the RTE player for 10 more days…
