9781848891753: The Great Blasket / An Blascaod Mor: A Photographic Portrait / Portraid Pictiur

Bilingual English/Irish. The thousands of photographs in The Great Blasket Centre cover a range of material, from the private mementoes of family members to the work of folklorists, press photographers, and much more. This collection catches the spirit of the island community, from the excitement of discovery in the late 19th century and early twentieth, through the heyday of the thirties, the decline of the forties and the legacy since 1953. Many of these photographs have never been seen in public and the view is up close and in person.

Book Description The Collins Press, Ireland, 2013. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English,Irish . Brand New Book. Ireland has a fine heritage of traditional culture and photography plays a major part in recording this heritage. Thousands of photographs now in Ionad an Bhlascaoid Mhoir/The Great Blasket Centre include a range of material, from private mementoes of families to the work of folklorists, press photographers, and others. The first photographs on the Great Blasket were taken by Alma Curtin in 1891. For the next sixty years or so the islanders and the island would be photographed by all who visited, including the children of people who had emigrated. The result is an extraordinary chronicle of a way of life and kinship, of the life and death of the Great Blasket, evacuated in 1953 but never abandoned. This collection captures the spirit of the island community, from the excitement of discovery by the outside world in the late nineteenth century, through to the decline of the 1940s and the legacy since 1953.
