Seán Kissane on The David Kronn Collection
IMMA’s exhibition Out of the Dark Room presents a selection of 165 works across all photographic media. It explores themes emerging through the collection like portraits of children, abstracted landscapes and portraits of artists, such as Irving Penn’s Frederick Kiesler and Willem de Kooning, New York, 1960. There are numerous iconic works, examples being Herb Ritts’s image of pop star Madonna from 1986; the portrait of Laurie Anderson by Robert Mapplethorpe from 1987; or Dr Harold Edgerton’s time-lapse photograph of a boy running from 1939.

Dr Kronn is a paediatrician with a specialisation in medical genetics, a fact which underlies the many images of children in the collection – such as Diane Arbus’s Loser at a Diaper Derby, 1967, or Martine Franck’s images of children from Tory Island (1994-97), and Irina Davis’s poignant portraits of children in a Russian state orphanage (2006-2007).

Seán Kissane, Head of Exhibitions, IMMA, will talk about the collection. Spaces are limited, so we recommend early booking via IMMA’s web site.
