Photographer: David Monahan
Irish photographer David Monahan captures the courage of the current generation of Irish migrants.
Embodying the despairs, hopes, dreams, resilience, sadness and excitement of starting life in a new land is this collection of over 30 poignant night-time images depicting Irish emigrants in Dublin locations significant to them. The work of Dubliner David Monahan, these beautiful photographs make connections between Australia’s Irish heritage and the situation today – when people are again leaving Ireland for a better life somewhere.
