Interview with Barry McCall
Play • 43 min

In this episode, we speak with one of Ireland's most well-known and trusted photographers, Barry McCall. Barry's incredible work spans a huge range of clients over many decades, including names such as U2 and Liam Neeson and print magazines such as Vogue and Rolling Stone.


We discuss his love of photography from an early age and how a chance meeting with the band led to the now iconic photos used to promote The Corrs' first tour. Join me as we talk of how he found himself in the 'Love to Love You' music video as well as the joy of being entrusted with wedding photography for band members and being asked to document Sharon's work with Oxfam on their 'Ending Poverty Starts With Women' campaign in Tanzania.

At 00:23:58 the episode features a clip of 'Leave me Alone' played live in Hamburg on December 11th, 1996, as part of the second European leg of the 'Forgiven, Not Forgotten' World Tour.
