New Irish Works is a triennial project run by PhotoIreland Foundation to represent and promote the growing diversity of contemporary photographic practices in Ireland, with the aim of enriching the Irish ecosystem with much needed new voices, facilitate much deserved new opportunities, and invigorate the Irish Photography scene. In its first iteration in 2013, New Irish Works presented 25 projects, in 2016 there were 20 projects selected. Now in 2019, the selection of 10 projects will be officially launched at the Museum of Contemporary Photography of Ireland next July. This is your opportunity to see these works first!
