“The most comprehensive survey yet undertaken of the past decades of photography on the island”

A YOUNG PERSON’S GUIDE TO THE EXHIBITION
This exhibition guide was made in consultation with a group of young people, who are alumni of The Ark’s Children’s Council. Over the past few months and as part of their Photo Club, they have met up and looked at photographs and discussed what exactly is going on with contemporary photography in Ireland.
Together, they designed this guide to the exhibition so that they can help other young people, and their families, learn a little bit more about photography, maybe this will help them look at the photographs in a new way. They don’t think that hard subjects should just be left for the grown-ups!
The participants in Photo Club were: Thomas, Kaelan, Aoileann, Manus, Rua, Ke Qiao, Zoë, Meabh, Emeraude, and Hugo. This project was facilitated by Róisín White.Download the Guide →
