4 events for... photography lovers seeking a striking image

Night time tours and politically charged exhibitions, events for all photography enthusiasts.

THESE DAYS EVERYONE is a budding photographer. We reach for our pockets to capture every moment and share it.

But sometimes photography can take a more considered approach to people and places, too.

Here are four events happening over the next few days for photographic enthusiasts.

1. Explore partition in Ireland portrayed through a series of photographs in new group exhibition

When: Until September 9

Where: Gallery of Photography, Meeting House Square, Temple Bar, Dublin 2

Examining the construct and limitations of borders throughout Ireland, several photographers have contributed work to a group exhibition entitled Reframing the Border. Showing in The Gallery of Photography, each piece takes an individual approach exploring the “diverse physical, social, psychological and imagined spaces” of the Border. Many respected and emerging names of photography will be exhibited, including Kevin Fox and Enda Bowe.

Reframing the Border will be on display until September 9 2018.

2. Revisit the radical history of the North, captured in an expansive exhibition for National Heritage Week

When: Until August 25

Where: Regional Cultural Centre, Port Road, Letterkenny, Co Donegal

Half a century ago, The North entered a prolonged period of violence. A Lost Moment is a multimedia exhibition featuring film photography that caught the riots in Northern Ireland taking place on the streets. Curated by Sean O’Hagan, the exhibition has been included in this year’s National Heritage Week programme.

3. Take a night-time trek through Dublin on a unique photography and walking tour

When: Thursday August 16, 9pm

Where: Meeting point is at O’Connell Street

Organised by Good Vibrationz, a new creative collective aiming to bring fun and creativity outside the studio and bring people together.
