Portfolio : Craic in Clare

Craic in Clare is a photographic project realized between 2008 and 2013 by Marie-Charlotte Loreille in Ireland, County Clare. The photographer wants to show the atmosphere around these pub tables where musicians of all ages and social classes sit. These music sessions came back in the irish landscape in the 70s, after a dark period when music and bals were banned by the Church. In addition to the purely entertaining aspect, theses musical meetings bring respect and allow exchanges whithout any judgment related to labels identity. Every evening spent in a pub is special, with its lot of surprises, human, sentimental or musical. The atmosphere will encourage anyone to “enjoy the craic!”
