Bobbie Hanvey is an award-winning photographer living and working in Northern Ireland. This digital collection brings together thousands of his photographs. The collection is made possible via the sustained efforts of the Boston College Parties, which has digitized 9 of the 13 collections in the series thus far. First-time visitors can click on the Series Listing area to get started. Here they will find titles for all of the series, which include Religious Leaders and Activities, Bombs and violence, and The Travelling People. This last area is particularly compelling as it contains over 500 negatives and transparencies taken by Hanvey chronicling these nomadic people in Northern Ireland. Visitors should also check out the Bobbie Hanvey area, as it includes a nice narrative description of his career and work. Finally, the site is rounded out by the Using the Collection section, which provides an overview of how best to search and utilize these materials.
