Fergus Bourke, The Bottle Throwers

Fergus Bourke’s The Bottle Throwers is now part of the David Kronn Collection at the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin. This collection comprises of more than 550 photographs ranging in content from 19th-century Daguerreotypes to works by icons of modern photography. In 2011, IMMA staged the first exhibition from this collection, and on August 2, 2014 opened Second Sight, a further view of works amassed by Dr. David Kronn. The exhibition includes many images of Ireland in the 1950s, 60s and 70s, a period in which “The Bottle Throwers” was taken, and juxtaposes them with contemporary photographs. Second Sight is on view now through November 9, 2014, and more information can be found here. See work from Fergus Bourke at SO Fine Art Editions, Dublin.
