[P]hotoIreland Festival is Ireland’s first international festival of Photography and Image Culture, and the only festival dedicated to Photography in Ireland. It celebrates Ireland’s photographic talents as well as bringing international practitioners and artists to Ireland. More than ever, the work of Irish based photographers can now be seen in museums and galleries as far away as Australia, Argentina, and China. The main exhibition of PhotoIreland Festival 2013 will reflect on the diversity of practices that constitute contemporary Photography in Ireland, and it will be accompanied by a special publication.
Celebrating its first edition in 2010, the PhotoIreland Festival became Ireland’s first international festival of Photography and Image Culture. With the motto “vibrant, friendly, all-inclusive: a festival for all to enjoy”, we set out to raise awareness on local and international photographers and artists working with Photography, and to underline the work of those organisations and individuals that for years have been promoting an engagement with the medium.
An essential part of the programme is the Book & Magazine Fair, The Library Project, and the Portfolio Reviews. This year,the Fair will give special attention will be given to new electronic books, and as every year, to the photobook, magazines, fanzines, and the self-published.
