Arthur Fields didn't plan to become the unofficial family photographer of a city. The Dublin-born son of Ukrainian emigrants fleeing anti-Semitism, he was a street photographer on O'Connell Bridge for fifty years. He took photos of famous celebrities, street characters and future stars, such as a seven-year-old George Harrison. He also photographed couples on first dates, people up in Dublin for a day, happy parents with newborn children, match-goers, and much more. These cherished photos, sourced from people's own photo albums, form the basis of this collection. The photos bear witness to a changing cityscape, fashion, lifestyle, social habits and even camera technology. This extraordinary social record is the culmination of the Man on Bridge project.
