JOHN MINIHAN AND ME
WRITER EDNA O'BRIEN PHOTOGRAPHED BY JOHN MINIHAN, LONDON 1971
I'm having a me, me, me moment. I could moan and gnash and tell you all why...shall I? Hmmm. Let me put it this way, I'm fed up giving and getting nothing back. Why are certain creative people so selfish!? Grrr, gnash, seethe.
So, to continue with the me, me, me theme of this post, look here in Southword for pics that John Minihan (John effing Minihan!!!) took of me and my partner and Juno at the Frank O'Connor Festival. This man has photographed Beckett, Bacon, Diana the Princess of Wales, and one of my heroines, Edna O'Brien, as well as various other wonderful and famous people. I am thrilled!
John is the annual official photographer at the Frank O'Connor Festival (aren't the Munster Literature people clever?) and you can buy limited edition prints from his website of Beckett if you are flush or buy one of John's books of photographs An Unweaving of Rainbows - Images of Writers here at the Book Depository.
