Only in Ireland will you come across events where a goat can be crowned king, where 'straw' people roam the streets freely, where men sip whiskey on horseback. These are just some of the things you could see at the traditional Irish fairs - a part of Irish culture that could well disappear within our lifetime.
Beautifully captured in the style of street photography, John Hall celebrates the diversity of some of the people you will find at Ireland's most recognised fairs and festivals. His subjects, young and old, are carrying on the traditions of their fathers and their grandfathers before them.
Fair faces: images frim a disappearing Ireland is a valuable photographic record of a uniquely Irish way of life that is rapidly being swallowed up by the trappings of modern living. It awakens nostalgia and records what it means to be uniquely Irish.
