Kim Haughton’s new body of work Portrait of a Century offers a stunning portrait of contemporary Ireland as it reflects upon the centenary of the nation’s birth in 1916. Resilience, intimacy, youth – these 100 photographs portray an Ireland at the precipice of change.
The poet, the sporting hero, the hopeful youth and nostalgic aged – Haughton’s vision of Ireland is one eclipsing past and present, a vision of the Irish nation seen through the prism of its people.
Between 2015 and 2016, one hundred people were invited to participate in Portrait of a Century, each born in a different year, beginning with T. K Whitaker (b. 1916) and ending in 2015. The resulting images are a fascinating depiction of contemporary Ireland, reflected in the diversity of its people and sense of nationhood and culture today.
