Glucksman Gallery

Beckett and the Wake: Photography by John Minihan

UCC Special Collections has recently acquired the archive of John Minihan and this exhibition will present his Athy wake photographs and images that he took of the writer Samuel Beckett.

Irish photographer John Minihan photographed the great playwright Samuel Beckett many times in Paris and London, capturing moments that have become iconic images of twentieth-century culture. Minihan’s friendship with Beckett began through a conversation about Minihan’s acclaimed exhibition The Wake of Katy Tyrell which he shot in the 1977, while visiting his hometown Athy in County Kildare. UCC Special Collections has recently acquired the archive of John Minihan and this exhibition will present the Athy wake photographs as well as images that he took of the notoriously reclusive writer.
