The nature of the PhotoIreland Festival is defined by its plasticity, not its rigidity. Meaning, the format of the festival adapts and changes yearly in by its inclusions and in its nature. The 2016 saw the launch of the second edition of New Irish Works, the Dublin leg of an ambitious EU project Flâneur: Urban Narratives, and the main show IDEALS which challenged standards in exhibition making as far as Photography is concerned.
This iteration of the festival examines subjects such as the dark side of Finnish policing, a look into perspective, how the Euro rail connects stories, Dublin through the lens of street photography, and so much more. In focusing on highlighting new photography, specifically the work of upcoming Irish Photographers, this year’s festival aims to propel the Irish art community.
We invite you to tour the digital archive of the festival, a mere glimpse into all the programming that took place in 2016.

Selected by an international panel of 23 professionals, New Irish Works 2016 brings you a selection of 20 projects and 20 photographers representing the diverse range of practices coming from Ireland. New Irish Works 2016 is a year long project of 10 presentations and 20 publications that aims to highlight the great moment Irish Photography is experiencing.
The artists selected are: Ailbhe Ní Bhriain, Aisling McCoy, Caitriona Dunnett, Dara McGrath, Daragh Soden, David Thomas Smith, Eanna de Freine, Emer Gillespie, Enda Bowe, Jan McCullough, Jill Quigley, Kate Nolan, Mandy O’Neill, Matthew Thompson, Miriam O’Connor, Noel Bowler, Robert McCormack, Roseanne Lynch, Shane Lynam, and Yvette Monahan.
Every month from July 2016 to July 2017, a special presentation will be hosted at The Library Project for two of the selected artists at a time. The presentation will include a display and a publication for each artist’s project. The two artists that will be presented during PhotoIreland Festival are Daragh Soden (Young Dubliners) and Mandy O’Neill (Promise).
PhotoIreland will bring New Irish Works abroad at key events like PhotoEspaña, with the support of the Embassy of Ireland in Madrid, and to Paris during Paris Photo, with the support of the Centre Culturel Irlandais.
