Evelyn Hofer
Dublin


In 1967 Evelyn Hofer portrayed the city of Dublin, once again a joint effort with V.S. Pritchett. As in the previously released publications, she tried to capture the character of Dublin with pictures of buildings, streets and especially with portraits.
The streets, buildings or the panoramic views over the city reveal Evelyn Hoferís interest in the appearance of surfaces in certain light. Moreover colour becomes very important in the photographs. Especially in Phoenix Park on a Sunday and Girl with Bicycle the purple tricots and the red socks seem consciously placed within the composition.
