Description

This is a black and white contact sheet of festival staff Mick Hannigan and Theo Dorgan. The contact sheet comprises four strips, with nine images in total. The numbered images show three head and shoulder publicity shots each of Dorgan and Hannigan and three images of them standing together.

We kept some examples of these contact sheets in the archive to show how photographers used positive prints from the negatives on a roll of film. This enabled the photographer to scan a series of thumbnail images to find the ‘keepers’ or the ones chosen to be enlarged. The photojournalist Henri Cartier-Bresson is famously known for analysing other photographers' contact sheets as a means of judging their work. We can see how the photographer explored their subject in the expanse of a single sheet.

In our example, we appreciate the images of the now-celebrated poet Theo Dorgan, and the cineaste Mick Hannigan who worked for the Cork International Film Festival for 27 years and now runs the IndieCork Film Festival.
