Photographer John Minihan

Photographer John Minihan

Fri 04 Dec, 7.30 pm

The Irish Embassy in Hanoi invites you to meet one of the world’s great photographers, John Minihan. Minihan will present a recent Irish television documentary entitled “The Man Who Shot Beckett,” and will also give a brief lecture on “Photography in the Lives of Irish Writers.”

Over the years Minihan developed a close relationship with many writers and his photographs of Samuel Beckett show a particular affinity between the two men. William Burroughs once referred to Minihan as “a painless photographer”. His friendship with Samuel Beckett produced some of the most remarkable photographs ever taken of the writer.

Please note: This event will be free of charge and open to the public, so we recommend that you arrive early to secure a good seat.
