PhotoIreland Festival 2013


Eight Gallery, 8 Dawson Street, Dublin 2
Opening: 6pm Tue 2 Jul
Dates: 3-14 Jul
Opening hours: Mon-Fri 10am-5pm / Sat-Sun 10am-4pm


Abroad showcases work by Irish photographers living and working outside the island of Ireland. The intention of Abroad is an attempt to answer questions raised by the wider themes of the PhotoIreland 2013 festival. Where does photography in Ireland find itself? Where are the Irish, what are they seeing, and what does our photography reflect back to us?

Such a wide variation of interpretation, time and place reveals the different ways in which the eyes of the Irish view the outside world – which, in many cases, echo the people and ambience of this island nation.

Curated by ESC Zine and Eight Gallery.

Photographers: Aine Belton, Eoin Cumiskey, Kate Kelly Murphy, Billy Kenrick, Erin Quinn, Mark Murray, Louise Scott, Philip Sliney, Maureen Trainor.
