Living with Pride, photographs by Christopher Robson

A bilingual celebration of the life and photographs of Christopher Robson, 1941-2013, at the National Photographic Archive, Meeting House Square, Temple Bar.

We ask all visitors to wear a face covering when visiting our Living with Pride exhibition.

Christopher Robson was many things in life – an architect, a trade union activist, a photographer – and he was gay, in an Ireland unlike the country we know today. In that Ireland, diversity was discouraged and homosexuality was illegal. Christopher worked for decades to win civil, legal, and social equality for LGBT+ people in Ireland.

Through those years of gay activism, Christopher also took thousands of photographs. In 2015, Christopher’s partner Bill Foley generously donated 2,000 photographs dating from 1992-2007 – many recording Dublin Pride marches – to our national collections, ensuring LGBT+ representation in Ireland’s story. In this bilingual exhibition, we celebrate those photographs, and we celebrate Christopher Robson, an extraordinary man who lived with Pride.

Living with Pride, photographs by Christopher Robson is open every day, 10am to 4pm. Last admission at 3.30pm.

Sunday 12 - 4pm
