Book Information

Title: The Other Half Lives Author: Wally Cassidy Foreword: Tony Murray Introduction: Gavin Corbett ISBN: 978-0-9569493-2-5 Format: Hardback, 240x257mm Extent: 144 pages, duotone Weight: 1.2kg Published: May 2014.

 

In these pages, on these streets (they begin to feel like one and the same thing), you’ll find heated protests, burning dummies, punks pissing on post-apocalyptic waste grounds, falling horsemen, dogs ready to pounce … You can practically hear the clang of metal barriers being rushed and the rattle of knuckles on placards.

– from the introduction by Gavin Corbet

In 130 photographs from the early 1990s, Wally Cassidy captures pre-boom Dublin in all its tattered glory. Loosely divided into four sections – Street, Protest, Smithfield and Punks – these images reflect the tensions and contradictions of a nation struggling to define itself. At times harsh, but tempered with humour and humanity, The Other Half Lives is an honest and arresting collection.

Book Information

Wally's latest book will be coming into the shops on the 23rd of November 2017.

It’s not surprising that much of his work has not been published before, as it illuminates dark corners and uncomfortable vignettes of Irish society. This work does not sell in galleries; appear on walls of corporate Ireland or the political elite.

This is not the Ireland of the stereotypical old man drinking stout in a ‘back lit’ pub, the doe-eyed freckle faced child or the rural rustig gate that has dominated Irish photographic culture.

This is photography ‘from’ the street not ‘of’ the street. However, while appearing to be ‘grab’ shots, there is evidence of careful attention to the classic social documentary photographic concerns and conventions.
