In May 1991 80 photographers from around the world take photographs throughout Ireland to document a typical day in the life of the country.

The plan is to publish a book which will celebrate photo journalism and document a day in the lives of Irish people. 

Photographer Tom Lawlor explains the background to the project, which began in Australia ten years earlier. Now it is the turn of Ireland to be caught on camera. Many locations around the country and even a photo shoot with An Taoiseach Charles Haughey have been scheduled as part of the assignment. Photographers will be patrolling the coast with the naval service, and an aerial expert will capture images of the country from above while another photographer is spending the day on the Falls Road in Belfast.
