Ireland’s International Festival of Photography & Image Culture.

@PhotoIrelandFST /PhotoIrelandFST @PhotoIrelandFST


“PhotoIreland 2010 is Ireland’s first international festival of Photography and Visual Culture. It is a festival that ventures enthusiastically to celebrate Ireland’s photographic talents as well as representing practitioners and artists from abroad. The festival aspires to highlight, promote and elevate photography – confer on it the importance it duly deserves. Foremost, it is a festival that is vibrant, friendly, all-inclusive: a festival for all to enjoy.

With more than 30 participating venues around Dublin city, over 100 participating photographers, and with the kind support of many leading cultural organizations and individuals, this year marks the start of what will become a nationwide festival. We hope you enjoy visiting PhotoIreland’s events as much as we did making them happen. We look forward to seeing you there.” – The PhotoIreland 2010 team
