Parr’s Ireland: 40 Years of Photography – A retrospective of the work in Ireland of acclaimed photographer Martin Parr – 4 Aug to 24 Sept

Parr – one of the pre-eminent photographers of his generation – has been taking photographs in Ireland since the 1980s, when he spent two years living in Co. Roscommon. His work from that time documented a pivotal period of social and cultural change on the island, and he has continued to produce evocative and thought-provoking work in the years since, both in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Now, for the first time, Parr’s work on Ireland over the last four decades has been collected and shown as a single exhibition. Having already been shown in Limerick, Dublin, Roscommon and Boston, Parr’s Ireland: 40 Years of Photography will be at Belfast Exposed between 4th August and 24th September 2022.

IRELAND. Dublin. O’Connell Bridge. From ‘Bad Weather”. October. 1981.

What is more, Belfast Exposed is privileged to be presenting a curated special edition of the collection, that includes work commissioned to focus on Northern Ireland specifically.

Save the date now to ensure you don’t miss out on the show, including a special launch night on Thursday 4th August and a series of associated events, and keep an eye on your inbox next week for more details on this once in a generation exhibition. | 028 9023 0965 |
