DOuglas hyde gallery
The Douglas Hyde Gallery is delighted to announce a forthcoming exhibition of works from the as yet largely unseen archive of photographer Dennis Dinneen (1927 - 1985). The Cork publican ran a portrait studio in the back room of his bar, documenting daily life there and further afield. His eccentric perspective, at once familiar and offbeat, made for striking portraits and scenes that transcend the everyday.
