Recorded in 2020, in this episode Emmett Scanlon talks to Jeanette Lowe. Jeanette is a photographer based in Dublin. The conversation is about architecture, housing and the people that live in it, specifically Pearse House,  a housing scheme designed by Herbert Simms and built between 1935-40 in Dublin. Jeanette begins by talking about her work as part of RTE Illuminations, in which she photographed what she calls, the “invisible front line”, workers who have gone out to work right through lockdown and Covid-19 and who also live in Pearse Flats. Jeanette  was born and lives in Dublin, Ireland.
