Rising photographic exhibition

Rising was a major photographic exhibition that showcased the National Library's rich imagery of the events and locations of 1916.

Rising drew on some of the most important collections of photographs at the National Library. It included images from the Keogh Collection, the Independent Newspapers (Ireland) Collection, newly digitised photographs from the De Valera Collection, and various 1916 albums. It consisted of 60 photographs, including a number of large scale photographs which emphasised the Rising's impact on Dublin's city centre. These images were enhanced by audio recordings of actors reading from selected letters and diaries detailing first-hand accounts of the Rising.
