Gerry’s portraits are shaped by history 

Limerick photographer Gerry Andrews with some of his award-winning images

AWARD-winning Limerick photographer Gerry Andrews hosts ‘Shaped by History’ at the city’s  Milk Market this Saturday, January 22 at 2pm.

The event is a unique and intimate environmental portrait of the people who represent Ireland’s past and those who symbolise its vibrant future, captured by Gerry at the market, 50 years apart.

In the early 70s, he embarked on a project to capture the changing face of Ireland by making a photographic record of the characters that frequented the Milk Market in his native city.  In recent years his photographs of the Milk Market and Limerick in the 70s, have received national and international acclaim.
