In this body of work the artist takes this format and turns it on himself. Members of the Irish Brigade of the American Civil War are depicted throughout the work, surely heroes in that pivotal time for their new nation. It is in this posse that the artist places himself introspectively against his peoples historic endeavors. Ambivalence becomes evident in this exploration of identity as the artist gnaws at both his own and the collective psyche.
Memory and its ritualized forms also figure in the work as the artist plays with the notions of the eulogy and the memorial. The cathartic nature of such ceremony is echoed through the work as the self struggles to reconcile with its own ever changing perception of the greater whole.
Réamonn Byrne lives and works in Brooklyn. He is a product of the Crawford College of Fine Art, Cork, Ireland.

On the occasion of the publication of Dan Winters's first monograph, Periodical Photographs, Aperture Foundation is pleased to present an evening with this top editorial photographer, who has contributed to some of America's most prestigious magazines, including New York, Esquire, Rolling Stone, and the New York Times Magazine. With an emphasis on his iconic portraiture, Periodical Photographs considers the body of work of a photographer whose unique sensibility is both adaptable and instantly recognizable. The book includes Winters's definitive portraits of some of Hollywood's most photographed A-listers (Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Winslett, Denzel Washington, and Leonardo DiCaprio) and music superstars (Bono, Eminem, and Willie Nelson). His voracious passion for the quirky and creative also draws him to visual artists, scientists, architects, and everyday, extraordinary Americans. One of the last additions to the book is a portrait of President Barack Obama taken in San Antonio, Texas, in March 2008 for Time magazine. Designed by Scott Dadich, award-winning creative director of Wired magazine, and with a preface by Lynn Hirschberg, editor-at-large at New York Times Magazine, Periodical Photographs showcases a photographer at the top of his game.
