Mayo County Library presents:

Mayo in the 50's & 60's : a talk by acclaimed photographer Liam Lyons

Castlebar Library, Thurs. 26th May, 7.30pm

Photographer Liam Lyons was the first Irish photographer to be awarded an honorary Fellowship for Landscape photography from the Irish Professional Photographers Association. His work hangs in many homes around the world including the White House and the state residence of the Irish President. Currently, Liam is working with Mayo County Library archiving 50 years of his photographic career.

Throughout his career, assignments by the Irish and International media have brought before his lens dignitaries such as Mother Teresa of Calcutta, Princess Grace of Monaco, Pope John Paul II, Nobel Prize and Lenin Prize winner Sean McBride S.C., Gene Kelly and many others.

Liam will speak on his life in photography, the people he has met and his love of his own place.
