Traveller (2001)


In 1965, photographer Alen MacWeeney embarked on a two-year project of photographing and recording the travellers of Dublin and Galway. Nearly thirty five years later, having carved out a successful career in commercial and fashion photography in New York, he returns to Ireland to find the travellers again, with his earlier archive providing the sounds and images of that faraway time, juxtaposed with the people of the present day. "not just a chronicle of a diminished culture, but a testament to the power of the photographic image"
