President Higgins launches stunning 'Portrait of a Century' exhibition
Irish photographer Kim Haughton has created a stunning collection of portraits that captures Ireland's identity, nationhood and ethnicity over the past 100 years.
Between 2015 and 2016, 100 people were invited to participate in Portrait of a Century, each born in a different year, beginning with T. K Whitaker (b. 1916) and ending in 2015.
The participants included writers, leaders, thinkers, musicians, sporting heroes and artists, including Oscar-nominated actress Ruth Negga, author Colm Toibin, boxer Michael Conlon, Rose of Tralee Maria Walsh, 2fm presenter Nicky Byrne and Chief Justice of Ireland Susan Gageby Denham.
The entire collection is available to view through a major exhibition in the National Museum, Collins Barracks.
It was launched by President Higgins on Wednesday and will be on show until December 31.
The images can also be seen in Kim's book Portrait of a Century: 100 Faces in 100 Years.
Kim, a photographic artist based between Dublin and New York, has had her images showcased in publications worldwide including the Sunday Times Magazine, FT Magazine and Vanity Fair.
She was named by TIME magazine as one of the top nine Irish photographers to watch.
