With the centenary of Dubliners’ publication approaching, an interesting digital display of the photography of J. J. Clarke is available through Google’s Cultural Institute, which partners with different institutions throughout the world to provide online access to various materials.  The Clarke exhibit is entitled “1897-1904-Dubliners: The Photographs of J. J. Clarke”.  The project describes Joyce’s Dubliners as a “unique record of life in Dublin, Ireland, at the turn of the last century” and presents Clarke’s work in this context because his images of Dublin streets and citizens, taken roughly when the short stories are set, “show us how the city looked to writer James Joyce.”  Clarke, a medical student, took the photos from 1897-1904.  View the photos here.
