By Arthur Fields, Ciarán Deeney & David Clarke


Add to wish list

Arthur Fields, the Dublin-born son of Ukrainian emigrants fleeing anti-Semitism, was a street photographer who stood on O’Connell Bridge for fifty years taking photos. He unknowingly became the unofficial family photographer of a city. Arthur provided a vital service taking photos of couples on first dates, people up in Dublin for a day, happy parents with newborn children, match-goers, and many more. These cherished photos form the basis of this collection. The photos bear witness to a changing cityscape, fashion, lifestyle, social habits and even camera technology. In terms of subjects, Arthur also took photos of famous celebrities, African princes, street characters and even future stars, such as a seven-year-old George Harrison.
