Evelyn Hofer, Dublin A Portrait
Andreas Pauly, Sabine Schmid
Steidl, 2023

The starting point for this book is Evelyn Hofer's 'Dublin: A Portrait', which features an in-depth essay by V.S. Pritchett and photos by Hofer, and enjoyed great popularity upon its original publication in 1967. 'Dublin: A Portrait' is an example of Hofer's perhaps most important body of work, her city portraits: books that present comprehensive prose texts by renowned authors alongside her self-contained visual essays with their own narratives. 'Dublin: A Portrait' was the last book published in this renowned series. The newly conceived 'Dublin' focuses on the photos Hofer took on behalf of the publisher Harper & Row in 1965 and 1966. In 'Dublin' Hofer repeatedly turned her camera to sights of the city, but mainly to the people who constituted its essence. She made numerous portraits?be they of writers and public figures or unknown people in the streets. Her portraits give evidence of an intense, respectful engagement with her subjects, who participate as equal partners in the process of photographing.
