This catalogue was produced to accompany an exhibition in he National Photographic Archive (NPA) gallery in Temple Bar and Pearse House Flats

“Pearse House: Village in the City is an extraordinary and unique exhibition by award-winning photographer Jeanette Lowe. In a series of startling photographs she has captured a hidden treasure of modern Dublin that is Pearse House Flats.

This exhibition unearths a vital, vibrant, and somewhat invisible ‘village’ in modern day Dublin and celebrates one of Dublin’s oldest communities.

The exhibition follows on from her hugely successful exhibition last summer “Pearse House: Memories; Perceptions; Reality” where Jeanette converted a flat in Pearse House into a gallery and exhibited her beautiful contemporary photographs of the people and environment of the flats alongside hundreds of old photographs contributed by local people. The exhibition won the People’s Choice Award in the PhotoIreland 2012 Festival.”
