This is an exhibition of Fr. Frank Browne’s best photographs.

Frank Browne took his first photographs during a European tour in 1897, just before joining the Jesuits. These pictures express the remarkable talent of a man who was to emerge as the most significant Irish photographer in the first half of the twentieth century.

In 1912 his Titanic photographs brought international fame and by 1916 he was a WW1 chaplain to the Irish Guards. In 1921 took his final vows and still suffering from war wounds he went to Australia to recuperate and made a superb series of photographs of life in that country.

On his return to Ireland he continued to record aspects of Irish ways of life both personal and corporate which, when added to his pictures in South Africa, Sri Lanka, Egypt, Spain and England constitute a fascinating interpretation of a rapidly evolving world.” During this time he made 41,500 negatives. He died in 1960 and his work was largely forgotten.

These pictures form the basis of this exhibition, which in combination with the Yale University Press publication, “Frank Browne, A Life Through the Lens”, will position him in his rightful place as one of the twentieth centuries great photographers.
