100 Views of Contemporary Ireland

on March 11, 2020
Running 14-29 March
At The Library Project

Presented as part of St. Patrick's Festival cultural city trail, and to mark the first decade of PhotoIreland, The Library Project brings together 100 Views of Contemporary Ireland, a collection of photographs, presented in the form of a postcard, by 100 contemporary photographers from Ireland.

Visitors will discover a different Ireland through the incisive, playful, and poignant work of these artists. Gathered in this guise, the images aim to represent the complexities and charm of a growingly diverse country that has changed beyond recognition in the last decades. One that, having achieved outstanding social and political milestones, reflects on present challenges, and aspires to an ideal future.

The project celebrates a discipline that has also undergone its own radical transformation in the last few years; it highlights the growing number of artists providing us with excellent work, and it underlines the role of PhotoIreland in contributing to a healthy ecosystem in Photography.
