Shaped by History – The Book
Acclaimed Limerick photographer, Gerry Andrews, is the subject of 2012’s summer exhibition at Limerick’s Hunt Museum. Focusing on his images of the Milk Market and Limerick life in the 1970s the images have a startling clarity revealing distant worlds and ways of life. Close in time but worlds apart the images challenge our views of recent history and the journey we are all on. In the midst of economic challenges the images recall, all too graphically, the challenges of recent generations.
Shaped By History is a 160 page book containing all of the photographs featured in 2012’s Hunt Museum exhibition along with some stories behind a select number of the better known images. All of the images featured in the current exhibition at the National Photographic Archive are also present.
