A Pair of New Eyes
Born to Burn Productions Presents A Pair of New Eyes
You think you know all about women in Ireland in the nineteenth century?
You think there’s not much to know?
In a town in the Irish Midlands in the nineteenth century, two ladies became world-wide pioneers of science, technology, and art.
Meet the Countess of Rosse, architect, engineer, blacksmith (yes, blacksmith), one of the best photographers in history, and an unmatched force in famine relief. Meet her cousin Mary Ward, astronomer, entomologist, and accomplished artist, whose books of microscopic images brought a shock to the Victorians. These extraordinary women broke all the rules. All… except one.
