This collection of more than 120 photographs creates a rich tapestry of images that tells of the triumphs and turmoils in the life of a nation. From photographs of pastoral picnics, holiday celebrations, and parlor portraits to snapshots documenting the impact of the troubles in the North; from joyful wedding parties to solemn funeral processions; A Photo Album of Ireland presents the people’s account of history that is both personal and powerful.

With more than 120 photographs, the A Photo Album of Ireland exhibit coming to Temecula Valley Museum offers a candid look at the “triumphs and turmoils in the life of a nation.”

This exhibition was created by the Gallery of Photography, Dublin, and organized by ExhibitsUSA in partnership with Culture Ireland.
