Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0856406791, Hardcover)The first photograph in Ireland was taken in 1839 by Belfast engraver Francis Beatty. Taking this event as his starting point, and ending with Luftwaffe aerial reconnaissance photographs in 1939, photo-historian W.A. Maguire traces the history of photography in the nine counties of Ulster. The book introduces the innovative and often colourful professional photographers who practised this evolving art-form in the north. Outstanding amateurs such as the 5th Earl Annesley are covered, as are the three great "amateur" professionals, Robert Welch, Alex Hogg and William Green. The flamboyant Professor Kineto, a pioneer of the cinematograph in Ireland, also makes an appearance. There is a comprehensive list of all known photographers and studios in the north of Ireland during the period, along with colour and black-and-white photographs.
