Man on the Bridge PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Man on the Bridge free pdf Arthur Fields, Dublin-born of Ukrainian emigrants fleeing anti-semitism, was a street photographer who stood on O'Connell Bridge for fifty years taking photos. He worked every day from the 1930s until 1985 aged eighty-four. Unknowingly, he became the unofficial family photographer of a city, having taken a estimated 182,500 photos of passers-by. When cameras were not within reach of normal people, Arthur provided a vital service taking photos of couples on first dates, people up in Dublin for a day, happy parents with newborn children, match-goers, and many more. These cherished photos form the basis of this collection. Each photo was submitted by its owner with a story and caption explaining the background. The photos bear witness to a changing cityscape, fashion, lifestyle, social habits and even camera technology. In terms of subjects, Arthur didn't just photograph everyday people but also famous celebrities, African princes, street characters and even future stars, such as a seven-year-old George Harrison, with his mother. The result is a window to an era when times were so different and photographs were taken to be cherished.This is a uniquely crowd-sourced publication, the culmination of the Man on Bridge project, a national photo collection campaign.

About Clarke David

Arthur Fields lived in the Dublin suburb of Raheny. Born Abraham Feldman, he changed his name to fit into Irish society. He started out as a tailor but realised the growing trade of taking and selling street photographs was an opportunity not to be missed. Little did he realise he would spend fifty years on O'Connell Bridge taking photos. Little did his wife Doreen realise she'd be developing them. Ciaran Deeney is a documentary filmmaker who has won over twenty international prizes. David Clarke is a producer with El Zorrero Films.
