Dublin inner city vagabond

up:date June 12, 2022 by Bonn Brandt

Dublin is a city that is rich in characters and personalities. One of them is Johney, a vagabond who lives on the streets. Here at the "middle line" of Dublin, where the river Liffey divides the Northside from the Southside, he has his first pint of beer in the morning.

Inner City Dublin

The location is an important geographical landmark in the city. The most central point of this line is in the O'Connell Bridge. Commonly, this area is referred to as Dublin's Inner City.

The ephemeral Celtic Tiger

Not everyone has benefited from the advantages of the so-called Celtic Tiger. When the Irish economy boomed in the late 1990s, for many time stood still. Prior to this period of rapid economic growth, for more than two centuries Ireland was one of the economically more vulnerable countries of Europe. The Celtic Tiger eventually went from boom to bust with rapid momentum.

Dublin Limited Edition Portraits

The photo was taken on a Sunday morning in May 1997 in Dublin. Photographer Jans Bock-Schroeder who lived in the Irish capital Dublin during that time explored the city with his Rolleiflex and took a series of timeless portraits of Dublin's locals.
