How can I sell my work in your shop?
We would love to hear from you, find out about selling your work at The Library Project in this link.

How can I exhibit in your gallery?

Can I hire your space for an event or exhibition?
No. We do not hire the space, but if you wish to propose an idea or collaborate on a cultural project, or a socially engaged initiative, do email us at

Can you look at my work? Can you help with my portfolio?
Yes, please have a look at the PhotoIreland services page and find the right fit for your needs.

How can I apply for a position?
We will always advertise any jobs under the opportunities page in PhotoIreland. This and subscribing to our newsletter are the best ways to find out about new positions. We do not accept in-store printed CVs outside of hiring periods.

I came by your shop during opening hours and you were closed.
During the COVID-19 restrictions, we may have to adapt our opening hours accordingly. Please check our current opening hours listed only in one place: the footer of this website.

In order to accommodate the installation and deinstallation of certain exhibitions, and for health and safety, we may close in short notice, but we will always keep you updated via our social media.

If in doubt, send us a note via social media or email letting us know about your plans, and we will reply right away.

January and September
The Library Project presents itself as a gallery every year during January and September and purchases are only available online. In this way, we accommodate the two annual exhibitions by the Black Church Print Studio members. 

The opening hours vary during these two months and will be published on our website at that time, and will be always up to date in the footer of this website.

How can I be published as part of your TLP Edition series?
We have an annual open call for these. Please keep an eye on the opportunities page in PhotoIreland, subscribe to our newsletter, follow our social media, and as always, keep us informed of your practice.
