This witty juxtaposition of characters is on location by the Henry Grattan statue on College Green, Dublin with the Bank of Ireland building in the background. Possibly taken in the 1970's. Born in 1934, Fergus Bourke has long been regarded as one of Ireland's foremost and finest photographers. His body of work spans a variety of genres from an extensive career over four decades.He was renowned as a photographer of Dublin street scenes in the 1960s, depicting the now vanished world of tenements and children's games, each one quietly observed and captured with warmth, compassion and humour. He was also seen to be a pioneering photo-journalist, documenting the depths of Irish poverty in the 1970s. A remarkable portraitist, he captured prominent Irish figures throughout the 1980s, work that was complemented by his extensive documentation of all major productions in the Abbey Theatre between 1970 and 1995. Fergus Bourke has exhibited widely in Ireland and internationally. His work is in many private and public collections. A collection of his work is held at the National Photographic Archive of Ireland and seven of his photographs are held in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York. He published a book of portraits, Kindred, in 1996, and collaborated with writer John O'Donoghue on two books, Landscapes of the Soul (2000) and Connemara Blues (2001). The Soul of Ireland, a book collecting Bourke's photographs from the late 1960s to the present, was published in Germany in autumn 2002.
