Remember that Summer in Dublin?
Filmmaker Pete O’Doherty writes:
Barry Delaney (the photographer) spent three years down by the Custom House starting back in 2007 photographing those who hung about that area at the time…
The Copper Coast, Ballydowane Bay, County Waterford
Photographer Kieran Russel writes:
Very Last minute dash to Ballydowane yesterday evening for a passing lightning storm. Got a fairly good strike rate but as it was almost completely dark composing the images became very difficult.
Taken in the studio he created in the back room of his pub in his home town of Macroom, County Cork, Dennis Dinneen’s portraits, which he worked on from the 50s to the 70s, add up to a detailed and affecting picture of an entire community.
Dennis Dinneen is at Douglas Hyde Gallery, Trinity College, Dublin, until May 27.

A look at some iconic reggae album covers, photographed in their original locations around London over four decades later, for Covers, an anthology of classic sleeves and the Thames-side surroundings that informed them, by photographer Alex Bartsch.
Writes Erin MacLeod in Pitchfork:
“London must be, outside of Jamaica, the place that is most richly influenced by Jamaican people living there,” says Al Newman (AKA Al Fingers) of One Love Books, the publisher behind Covers and a number of evocative books related to reggae. “I grew up in London and I grew up with Jamaican culture. But it is also kind of an unknown history to many people in the UK.”
The book has successfully completed Kickstarter funding, but is still available for pre-order here.
