About this event

Join us to celebrate the launch of the latest issue of Source Photographic Review: Issue 104 - 'Legacy'. Featuring live interviews & Q&A with photographer Ori Gersht and feature contributor Dr Emily Mark-FitzGerald who has been looking at the trend for colourising old photographs and what is omitted in the process. Hosted by Editor Richard West. In partnership with Gallery of Photography Ireland. 

Issue 104 - 'Legacy'

From the moment a photograph is made and a small part of the past lingers into the ongoing present, a question is posed as to what is going to be done with it. Issue 104 of Source explores how photographs form both a material legacy and one of meaning. Featuring portfolios from Ori Gersht, Elena Helfrecht and the National Folklore Collection Ireland alongside news, features, columns, interviews, and book reviews.

Ori Gersht was born in Isreal but has lived in London for over 30 years. Throughout his career his work has been concerned with the relationships between history, memory and landscape. He repeatedly uses the tension between creation and destruction in order to discover something new. In his new work he has been working with postcard imagery from historic museum collections and considering how these collections are defined and the way their historical story is being narrated. Issue 104 features a retrospective portfolio with selections from Gersht's photographic work to date, and an interview by Declan Long.

Dr Emily Mark-FitzGerald's acedemic specialisations include the visual culture of famine, poverty, migration, and diaspora (painting, engraving, photography, cinema and material culture); memory, commemoration and public art; museum studies and heritage; and Irish cultural policy and institutions. She is the author of Commemorating the Irish Famine: Memory and the Monument (Liverpool University Press, 2013). In her Issue 104 article 'Tinted History' she discusses recent trends in the colourisation of old photographs.

Free to attend. Booking essential. This event will take place via Zoom. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to get in touch with Susanna via subs@source.ie - We look forward to seeing you there!
