The Echo Seller

The Echo Seller

The Evening Echo seller on Patrick’s Street, Cork, has been selling the evening paper for longer than I care to remember. I took a shot of him back in 2005 and he’s still there, braving wet and cold and every other sort of weather.

PS. shot on Saturday while on a hastily organised photowalk with AJ.

    This guy has been selling the Echo since I was a young boy, for at least 25 years. It may be just in my head, but he seems ageless, looks the same now as he did in 1983

    I left Cork almost 20 years ago and he had been around selling the paper forever at that point. Thanks for the photo showing him still at it.

    Was really tempted to ask to photograph him when I saw him in Dublin over Christmas
