BELFAST’S GIANTS: Thirty-six Views of Samson and Goliath, by Dennis Kennedy
Two hundred years ago Japanese master printmaker Hokusai embarked on his famous series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji. A century later the French painter Henri Rivière, produced Les Trente-six vues de La Tour Eiffel. Retired journalist and occasional photographer Dennis Kennedy has now, with apologies to Hokusai and Rivière, come up with Thirty-six Views of Samson and Goliath, three dozen of his own photographs taken over the past thirty years. They depict Harland and Wolff’s gantry cranes from a variety of viewpoints and constitute a modest tribute to the two Biblical giants and to the city they have come to symbolise
