Here’s an interesting article about the Dublin Waterfront from the Irish Times. There’s more about David Jazay’s #DublinbeforetheTiger project here.
From 1982 to 1992, David Jazay photographed Dublin’s quays. Here is how they looked, then and today
A section of the north city quays captured by German photographer David Jazay and a montage of how it looks today. Photographs: David Jazay, Dara Mac Dónaill/The Irish Times Dublin Before the Tiger is a long-term study of the inner city from 1982 to 1992 by German photographer David Jazay .
As a visitor to Dublin in those years, Jazay was acutely aware that the city was changing fast, and he set out to document premises under immediate threat of demolition.
He felt – rightly as it turned out – that this “poor but lively inner city” would lose much of its local business culture within a few years.
