“There is a threaded pulse that runs beneath the surface of this street. Sometimes, in one of those quiet, series moments of the night when the city briefly stills itself, as if to open out its sighs, you can almost hear it – you can hear it as a kind of low, insistent throbbing, almost a rhythmic sequence, and at once you’ll know that it contains dark information. It tells us that we are all being led along the thread of the pulse. It tells us that we are all being led along”.
Made in Dublin brings together Eamonn Doyle’s three extraordinary photography series: i, ON and End. Shot a stone’s throw from his front door, this Dublin trilogy provides a multifaceted portrait of a city undergoing and surviving rapid changes.
Text vignettes by prize-winning author Kevin Barry enrich the visual trip. Imagining what might be happening just out of frame, Barry gives voice to the otherwise silent Dubliners captured by Doyle’s camera. Including new and unpublished photographs, Niall Sweeney’s design completes what can only be described as an exhilarating surround-sound, cinematic experience in book form.
