The Gallery of Photography in Dublin Ireland, had on display a few photographs from their archive of work by Ireland’s Billy Doyle. His photos of people in Ireland throughout his active years reflect his inquisitive nature, his broad range of interests, and his openness to new experiences. While reading about Doyle, I learned that he fully subscribed to the renown French photographer (Cartier-Bressons ) doctrine of the “decisive moment”. The decisive moment was the art of being in the right place, at the right time, with fast reflexes. His work is moody and inspiring because he encourages a photographer to live and work through experience. He was largely self-taught which shows how powerful a talented eye and a strong passion and constant photographing can be.
