Pearse House Photography Exhibition: Council Flats in the 1930s

Play

Photographer JEANETTE LOWE joins Noel McGuinness to discuss the launch of her latest photo exhibition, which is being opened by the Lord Mayor of Dublin in Meeting House Square in Temple Bar.

The exhibition is connected to a project revolving around the restoration of a dwelling in the Pearse House flats to its original 1930s decor.

Jeanette says she wants to challenge stereotypes that may exist of the type of person who lives/lived in corporation housing and gain an insight into life within these buildings.
