DENNIS DINNEEN

FRI OCT 6 2017 — SAT DEC 23 2017

Irish photographer Dennis Dinneen (1927-85) was a publican, taxi driver and photographer in his hometown of Macroom, County Cork. His studio was a cluttered backroom in his pub. Only a few thousand people lived in Macroom, and everyone knew Dinneen’s bar. They would go in for a pint, and get a portrait. Taken between the 1950s and the 1970s, the photographs would be cropped for official documents, kept as drunken souvenirs or sent to loved ones overseas. Dinneen's archive of thousands of unedited negatives contains a series of uncanny and mysterious portraits from an artist whose talents were overlooked during his lifetime.
