Event Description

Peter Varga is an author, photographer, and creator of the social media phenomenon Humans of Dublin.

Over the past decade, he has approached thousands of people on the streets of Dublin and posted over 2,500 portraits and stories to his page. His collection beautifully encapsulates the essence and spirit of Dublin through its residents. Each portrait and accompanying story serve as a glimpse into an individual's life but also as a piece of a larger narrative that celebrates the collective human experience.

These stories range from uplifting tales of love and success to poignant accounts of hardship and perseverance, illustrating the shared humanity that connects us all. By highlighting the uniqueness of each individual's journey, Varga pays homage to the city's rich cultural diversity and reminds us of the power of storytelling. His work functions as a living archive of Dublin at this point in time, capturing the city's evolving identity and preserving the voices of its people for future generations.

This 60 portrait exhibition will feature 10 unique stories created specifically for this exhibition, featuring people from Dún Laoghaire.
