Group Exhibition at The Gallery of Photography, Dublin of work by a selection of Ireland’s leading contemporary photographic artists. For the first time, it brings together work by artists who have established considerable international reputations and whose photographs are represented in major collections worldwide.
Paul Seawright presents works from "Conflicting Account" . Seawright recovers visual fragments and texts from the surfaces of the urban landscape of his native Belfast. The work examines the continued play of competing claims to meaning and identity in a post-conflict context.
This exhibition explores a particular strand of international practice, showcasing what can be called ‘slow’ or ‘considered’ photography. This has come about in response to the increasingly throwaway nature of photographic images in the digital world. In contrast, the images in The Long View were made as part of a sustained process of engagement over periods of months or even years.
The exhibition addresses questions of landscape and memory, history and social change, in both Irish and more global contexts.
Artists exhibiting were David Farrell , Anthony Haughey , Richard Mosse , Jackie Nickerson , Paul Seawright and Donovan Wylie.
