Published to accompany an exhibition at the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Second Sight presents 50 photographs drawn from the collection of David Kronn over the past 20 years. Kronn's interests have included work by Edward Weston and August Sander, as well as by contemporary award-winners such as Trine Sondergaard and Simon Norfolk. Kronn's wide travels have influenced his collecting: Japanese photography is represented by Daido Moriyama, Asako Narahashi, Tomoko Sawaad and Hiroji Kubata, while Kronn's interest in Mexico is reflected in portraits of Frido Kahlo by Manuel and Lola Álvarez Bravo. Pieter Hugo's acclaimed photographs of South Africa are also featured. A foreword by Sarah Glennie, an essay by Virginia Heckert and an interview between Kronn and Seán Kissane explore themes such as representations of Ireland from the 1960s to the present, portraits and double portrait and contemporary photography from Africa, Japan and Latin America.
