This long-form documentary profiles veteran Irish photographer, Colman Doyle, who has documented almost every major historical event in Ireland over a 50 year period.

Directed by James Kelly, this insightful documentary explores Doyle’s vast archive of photographs covering  the political, social and economic history of Ireland – both North and South – through the second half of the 20th Century.  The film follows Doyle as he returns to shoot photos of West Kerry, reconnects with his early work as a press photographer and takes an in-depth look at the work in his collection over the last few decades.

Colman won many awards throughout his career including PPAI Photographer of the Year, Four Masters, British Press Pictures of the Year and many more. The National Library of Ireland now house over 25,000 photos from his collection.
