Having exhibited works by Tom Wood and Paul Seawright amongst others in previous years, the centre underlines its clear commitment to the medium during this key weekend, aware of the value of Paris Photo for Irish Culture and its relevance in the international Arts context. The centre will present this year Hannah Starkey’s first exhibition in France: Women. Also, during his residency at the centre, PhotoIreland founder and Director, Ángel Luis González Fernández will work on the framework for a photography-focused event to take place annually during Paris Photo.
