Winner of 2012 Book of the Year Award at the Irish Print Awards
Acclaimed Limerick photographer, Gerry Andrews, is the subject of 2012′s summer exhibition at Limerick’s Hunt Museum. Focusing on his images of the Milk Market and Limerick life in the 1970s the images have a startling clarity revealing distant worlds and ways of life. Close in time but worlds apart the images challenge our views of recent history and the journey we are all on. In the midst of economic challenges the images recall, all too graphically, the challenges of recent generations.

Hi Gerry, Lovely to see a photo of my grandfather Patrick Dunne now my own kids have a photo of him from the book also. The book is brilliant. Thank you
Patrick Ambrose –
Your book is beyond words Gerry, the pic of the boy in the doorway with dogs looks like a work of art, with heavy brush strokes, brilliant.

As a proud Limerick lady, I just love it.
Many thanks for a job well done.

I first discovered your pictures this summer, by chance, walking as every tourist in Dublin at Temple Bar, we entered the National Photographic Archive where your exhibition was taking place. What a shock! There, I saw your book, but it was not for sale. Coming back home, I tried to find it on the net, and discovered it was exhausted… but maybe going to be reprinted! And now I have it, and I can contemplate again this amazing pictures of another time (at least, that’s how I feel them) but a real one, real people I could love, could be, so many lives. Thanks, for doing that extraordinary job first, and reprinting now, so it can be known and people can take advantage of it and the pictures stay alive

So happy with the book, not only is it full of wonderful images and background information but it is such an inspiration to me as I am learning photography myself. If I can take shots half as good as these images I will be happy.
If you love photography get this book.
Thank you Gerry for such a masterpiece.
