Humans of Dublin - An exhibition

Humans of DublinFebruary and March in Dublin City Library and Archive.

Photographic Exhibition by Peter Varga. Two years ago, Peter Varga began a photo project that would change the course of his life. Inspired by the success of similar projects internationally, he began to walk the streets of Dublin, interviewing and photographing those he met along the way. The result is a remarkable series of portraits which capture the vibrancy and diversity of Dublin life. From tales of inspiration and joy to those of heartbreak and loss, all of human life is captured in these wonderful photos in Varga’s book and exhibition.
