Alen MacWeeney: Irish Travellers and Yeats

Alen MacWeeney: Irish Travellers and Yeats at Steven Kasher Gallery in New York. "...a pair of complimentary photographic projects made by Alen MacWeeney in Ireland between 1965 and 1969. The exhibition will present over 70 vintage and modern prints. This show accompanies the publication of Irish Travellers, Tinkers No More and also surveys MacWeeney’s classic images based on the poetry of William Butler Yeats. Together the two bodies of work present Alen MacWeeney as a documentary romantic whose subjects include the survival of the pre-modern in the modern world, the survival of individuality against all odds, the survival of innocence in experience, and the survival of Ireland in the mind."
