Discover the most recent work from five contemporary Irish photographers in this exhibition at The Library Project, presented as part of the FUTURES Photography Platform, an initiative co-funded by Creative Europe.

Each year, the FUTURES members nominate a number of artists to join the platform. By bringing together a wealth of resources and curatorial expertise, each talent selected by the members gains access to an unprecedented network of professionals, markets and audiences. The platform aims to stimulate the photographic economy from the bottom up by expanding the market. These members are prominent institutions operating in the field and have a great impact and influence in the world of photography, with PhotoIreland one of the founding members.
