German Archive / Bellum et Pax

My German photographic archive covers a period from the 1930s to the 1970s. Many of the collected images were used in the shortlisted ‘Bellum et Pax’ for Kassel Photo Festival 2015. PhotoIreland presented Bellum et Pax in the Tara Building as part of their 2017 festival. The exhibition was covered and referenced by Totally Dublin and PhotoEspaña.
